Bay surf just got serious with wave measuring buoy.Transport for NSW advises that a wave measuring buoy was installed at the entrance to Port Hacking near Bundeena on Wednesday 30 June 2021 and will remain in place until Friday 1 October 2021.

The wave buoy, deployed off Gunya at the entrance to Port Hacking, has been deployed to measure waves entering the estuary. During that deployment NPWS Scientists will carry out a study of hydrodynamics and sediment transport by deploying temporary wave and current meters (small instruments underwater) around the sand shoals and in front of the beaches.

The wave buoy is anchored in position by a mooring apparatus. The apparatus includes a floating yellow buoy with a 10 meter weighted line anchored to the seabed. It will exhibit a flashing yellow light at night.

The apparatus will be removed from the water prior to 1st October 2021. Vessel operators are advised to navigate with care in the vicinity of the wave measuring device and mooring apparatus. Further information or any issues should be reported directly to the Transport for NSW Maritime information line on 13 12 36.

Hello wonderful members of the CSKC,

I hope that you are ok and managing the lockdown well.

Due to the extension of the lockdowns by another two weeks, the future of our Harbour Series race is now in doubt, however, the committee is meeting next week (virtually) and I will personally provide you with an update after the meeting.

In the meantime, please have look at this wonderful video message by our club president, Michael:
