The bush fires on the North Coast have been around for weeks now. Today they are closer than ever, but still well away from the marina. The fires are burning to the west at Ashby and to the north Woombah. There is ash in the air and everyone should keep an eye out for burning embers. Hot ash and burning material can fly for many kilometres in advance of the fire front. Strong winds are pushing the fires south.

Everyone need to be on the lookout. And when the danger passes…..all the boats will need a good clean….ash is everywhere!. Stay safe and thank god for the firies!!!!!
