Saturday's patrol was tasked to speak to swimmer and jet ski rider after a heated discussion had taken place between the two of them.
We have five knot bouys in the bay every Summer, and the rules are simple.....any craft inside (ie the beach side) of that line of bouys is limited to 5 knots.
That's not to say that speedboats and jet skis cannot come inside the line - they can, but at 5 knots maximum.
On Saturday the swimmer was quite shaken when he realised just how close a speeding jet ski had been. The jet skier was spoken to by the team and details passed to the MCA.
There is also a buoyed off swimming area on the main beach from which all motorised craft are prohibited
If you are boating into Swanage,don't forget to Arrive at Five Knots - no more !
