Sand Bar closed

Officers from the RCIPS Marine Unit have closed the Sand Bar today, Monday 4 January 2010because of the continuing inclement weather.

‘RCIPS has been working with the Water Sports Operators for a number of years now in efforts to ensure safety for people who use the water and marine life alike, said Brad Ebanks officer in charge of the Marine Unit. ‘It’s a fact that during this time of the year we experience unsuitable conditions bringing high winds and rough seas that cause unstable ‘in water’ activity as the Sand Bar is situated near one of the channels.’

Mr. Ebanks added that the rough seas can be very dangerous for boaters, and jet skiers and urges everyone to use caution and take the weather seriously before deciding to venture out to sea in inclement weather.
