NSW: DANGER WARNING FOR ENTIRE COAST

NSW Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has issued a rare alert to boaters warning of dangerous surf conditions along the entire coast.

Following a Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) announcement on Thursday morning, dangerous surf conditions are expected to extend from the Victorian border tonight to the Queensland border

RMS said skippers and owners of small craft should be on high alert and check the conditions before considering crossing a coastal bar or heading offshore. Rock fishers should also check weather forecasts before heading out to decide if it is safe to fish near dangerous surf.

Strong winds can also cause dangerous conditions for vessels on moorings which have been poorly maintained.

Visit RMS for more information.
