Waimea River Jet Boat Slalom Event December 2018 (pdf, 228 KB)

Between 8am and 4pm on Sunday 16 December 2018, the waters of the Waimea River are reserved for a Jet Boat Giant Slalom event and Christmas Picnic, organised by the Nelson/Marlborough branch of Jet Boating NZ. The backup day for this event will be Sunday 23 December.

A speed-limit uplifting is also in force, only for certain vessels directly involved in the event.

Public access to the river between the Appleby Bridge and where Bartlett Road allows access to the riverbed is prohibited during this period, in the interests of safety.

This includes, but is not limited to: wading, angling, swimming (including dogs), boating, kayaking, rafting, and 4WD crossings.
