Visit by NSW Maritime fails to result in fines
A visit to Ettalong by a senior NSW Maritime executive and five boating safety officers to deter unsafe jetski behaviour has failed to result in any penalities being issued.
NSW Maritime executive director Mr Angus Mitchell and five other officers patrolled Brisbane Water over the weekend of January 6 and 7.
Mr Mitchell said the RMS was there to monitor the conditions and acted according to water-goers' behaviour over the weekend.
Over the weekend, officers also "engaged" with water users about the responsible use of personal watercrafts and expected behaviour on NSW waterways.
The officers did issue multiple verbal warnings to jet ski operators and other personal water craft users for minor speed infractions, but not issue any penalties.
