Rope will be strung on the surface between each mooring with two yellow buoys between each mooring and will not be able to be navigated through by any craft.  To the north west of these positions, lengths of pipe have been laid across the shallow spit area as shown on the  map below.

Mariners should avoid navigating in the area due to the shallow bottom and the submerged hazards.

Kayakers and shallow draft boats should also navigate with care.
