Dragon boat races are being held on Jack Evans Boat Harbour, Tweed River, this Sunday. NSW Maritime has granted an exclusive use aquatic licence for the safe staging of the event.

NSW Maritime Regional Manager North Coast James Green said boaters should avoid the buoyed area within Jack Evans Boat Harbour between 8am and 5pm this Sunday, 13 November.

'For safety reasons, skippers should avoid the area this Sunday as it will be restricted for the event,' Mr Green said.

'The area will be patrolled by control vessels.'

Mr Green said unauthorised vessels would not be permitted to enter the exclusive use area unless authorised by event organisers, a NSW Maritime Boating Safety Officer or a Police Officer.
