Relaxation of Exe Estuary Byelaw 5 (10 knot speed limit) has been authorised by Exeter Port Authority for participants in both events.

Each event will take place between No.12 Buoy (Mamhead Slipway, Exmouth) and Exe Safe Water Mark (Buoy marking the entrance to River Exe) within a four-hour time slot from 11:00hrs to 15:00hrs.

Each event is provisionally arranged to start at 11:00hrs, but can be later, subject to tidal conditions, weather, or other circumstances. The anticipated time duration of each event is 30 minutes.

Guard Boats will be positioned both within and at the approaches of the course. VHF Marine Channel 6 will be the preferred communications in use. Mamhead Slipway will be the prime slipping facility in use for both events.

Both events are subject to any UK Covid-19 Regulations in force, and will only take place if such Regulations allow.

Both events will be under the control of Exe Power Boat & Ski Club. Details of the events are published on the Club’s Website www.exmouthskiclub.com
