The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport have issued a Marine Notice for the Volvo Ocean Race Finish in Galway this summer.
It is for the attention of Passenger Vessel Operators, Passenger Boat Operators, Skippers , Harbour Authorities, Race Organisers and Recreational Craft Owners.
It is expected the event will attract significant numbers, including a large fleet of spectator boats and sightseeing charter vessels to the area.
The Marine Survey Office (MSO), which is the national authority responsible for regulating maritime safety, wishes to bring certain items to the attention of those organising, participating in, or attending the Volvo Ocean Race.
