Notice To Mariners

Port of Mallacoota

Location: Bastion Point seawall

DATE:  15 November 2021

DETAILS: Recent East Coast Lows causing strong Easterly weather conditions and associated seas and swells have dislodged a large rock from the structure of the Bastion Point seawall at the entrance to the ocean access boat ramp.

East Gippsland Shire has reported that the rock has split into 3 pieces located near the seawall midway between Bastion Point port hand lateral beacons #2 & #4. The rocks are compromising the available depth in that position. The rocks are located in a surf zone and are unable to be marked. East Gippsland Shire will remove the rocks as soon as is practically possible.

Mariners are advised to take extra precaution and avoid entering or departing the boat ramp approach entrance close to the seawall. A photograph and map indicating the position of the rock is attached to this Notice.

Mariners are advised that transits of the approach channel and entrance should only be carried out during fine weather conditions and if there is sufficient height of tide taking into consideration the vessels draft, the existing sea state, predicted weather conditions for the duration of the voyage and the expected conditions and tide height for the time of return.

Passage through the approach channel should only be attempted by experienced vessel operators who possess sound knowledge of the conditions to be expected during the transit of the channel taking into consideration the prevailing weather and sea state at the time.

Passengers and crew should be briefed so they are aware of the heightened risk that may prevail at the time of departure or arrival
