Swimmers, jetskis and boats

Do you swim at a Port Melbourne beach?
If you do, you would be interested in the review being conducted by Parks Victoria about boating zones. Early feedback has been strongly that swimming and jetskis don't mix.

The review of the zones is intended to make the near shore water a safer place by simplifying the currently complex range of zones. Once adopted the zones will be more clearly marked than they are at present which will assist with compliance.

The areas that have the highest swimmer density, usually in front of Life Saving Clubs will become 'no boating zones' (equivalent to swimmers only)
You are encouraged to respond to a survey on the council's website or email comments and queries to  Submissions close Tuesday 14 April 2009
