For the 3rd time this week Coastguard Rescue Officers have had to speak to the owners of craft speeding close to the shore.
Swanage has a 5 Knot speed limit for craft from the beach out wards marked clearly by yellow marker bouys.
All owners denied knowledge of knowing there was a speed limit although the same boat now has been spoken to twice!
The Coastguard will be passing the vessel details to both Purbeck District Council ( Enforcement Authority) and Dorset Police. Ultimately should an incident occur the person in charge of this vessel would be personally liable for damage to other boats, or injury to persons.
The speed limit is vital for the safety of other users of the bay.
Please respect the limit and ensure the safety of swimmers especially.
