#MARINE NOTICE - The latest Marine Notice from the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (DTTAS) warns mariners off Gormanston, Co Meath of live surface-to-air firing practices over two days next week.
The Defence Forces will be conducting the live firing exercises at Gormanston Air Defence Range on 3 and 4 July 2012 from 8am to 6pm each day.
The danger area comprises the lands of Gormanston Aerodrome and the Air and Sea areas contained within a radius of 3 nautical miles centred on Gormanston Aerodrome, with an additional area contained within a segment centred on Gormanston Aerodrome and bearing of 015º degrees true, through Mosney Railway Station and 106º degrees true, through Gormanston Railway Station seawards for a distance of 10 nautical miles.
For the periods whilst the Range is active the sea zone within the danger area is excluded to all vessels. A Naval Service vessel will enforce the exclusion zone ‘D1’, which is indicated on British Admiralty Chart No 44.
All vessels are advised that they are required to remain outside of the exclusion zone whilst the Range is active. All vessels in the area are also recommended to carefully monitor the Radio Navigation Warnings that will be broadcast during the firing period.
