Just to clarify the "exemption" given to Wavejets in Victoria let me lay out the facts Wavejets are STILL classified as a powered vessel and also the PWC catergory.
The exemption ONLY covers the following points
1) The do not need to be registered
2)They do not need to carry safety equipment such as flares and bailers
3) They do not need to have a licensed operator
4)They do not need to wear a lifejacket unless 400m offshore
They are STILL A PWC!!!!!!!
They still have to obey speed and distance rules near surfboards and swimmers. They are prohibited from entering or launching from PWC exclusion areas, such as
PT ROADNIGHT, SHOREHAM, PT LEO amongst many!!!!
Transport Safety Victoria have granted this exemption but a search of there website does not recognise any wavejet links
Email the Director of Transport Safety Victoria, Peter Corcoran at
and im sure? he will explain why you cant find it and am sure he will email you a pdf of the "exemption" How could he not??
after all its a marine safety issue!
If you see any of these PWC in any exclusion zones, or interfering with surfers and travelling at more than 5Knots within 50m amongst other things,
IMMEDIATELY ring VICTORIAN WATER POLICE
and make a report. These are the facts. Get yourself a copy of the so called exemption and read it for your self
Get some balls surfers!!!!!!
All i hear is big talk about how p'd off you all are, now heres your chance to learn the facts and enforce the law, stop talking and act!!!
Well you have spoken!!
