In recent months the club has received an increased number of reports from marina users, Club members and sailors around the increased frequency and severity of surge events associated with marine traffic movements in front of the Club.
In order to quantify the frequency, severity, impact and cause of these events it has been agreed at a recent Hobsons Bay stakeholder meeting that all marine operators collect reports from their own members / customers. The goal being to gather a database that can support our assertion that steps need to be taken by various agencies to protect the marine infrastructure that supports the Hobsons Bay Maritime precinct.
If there has been damage to your boat, or an injury then please also complete and submit a Marine Safety Victoria report which can be downloaded here. MSV have made it clear that they need to receive reports before they can take any action, so please do take the time to complete a report in the case of injury or near miss and where damage has occurred.
