...INLET SAFETY...

THE FOLLOWING IS A SAFE BOATING MESSAGE FROM THE SHALLOTTE RIVER SAIL AND POWER SQUADRON

Boaters be safe, and not sorry, when navigating inlet waters. Inlets can present unique conditions especially with drastic weather changes. Be sure to check the currents, tides, wind direction and any potential changes which might take place during the period of time you expect to be out in the ocean or navigating the inlet. When the wind is blowing onshore and the tides are ebbing a much more dangerous situation exists in inlets. The bouy system has been established for boaters to be able to determine existing conditions--not only near shore but also 20 miles off shore where conditions are often times much different. Get the latest on the wind speed and direction as well as the wave height, barometric pressure and water temperatures. Boaters should also keep tuned to NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards for the latest weather alerts. Remember... be safe--not sorry!
