Highway to Hell

Important Long Weekend Road Closure Information

Highway to Hell is being staged along the Canning Highway on SUNDAY 1st March 2020 3pm - 9.30pm in partnership with the City of Melville, City of Fremantle and the Town of East Fremantle as part of the PERTH FESTIVAL.

Highway to Hell is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for residents to ‘reclaim’ the Canning Highway for a day of live performances and other exciting and family-friendly activities. Taking inspiration from the AC/DC song of the same name, Highway to Hell will involve closing a 10km stretch of the Canning Highway from Canning Bridge in Applecross to Queen Victoria Street in Fremantle (the old traffic bridge) to create the world’s longest stage and Perth’s playground for a day.
Canning Highway from Canning Bridge, Applecross to Queen Victoria Street, Fremantle and one block back along the route will be closed to traffic from 1pm and will reopen in sections by 11pm. Leach Highway and South Street will remain open.

Key crossroads at Reynolds Street, Riseley Street, Stock Road and Petra Street will remain open for the duration of the event, allowing traffic to flow south/north across Canning Highway.

Stirling Highway and Queen Victoria Street traffic bridges will remain open for the duration of the event, allowing traffic to flow south/north across the bridges.

Access to Kintail Road to Canning Bridge freeway north entrance will remain open for the duration of the event, allowing traffic to flow to freeway north.

For more information on this event and road closure maps, head to the Perth Festival website here

Plastic Statistics


It’s estimated that 630 million kilos of trash enters the ocean each year alone. Plastic pollution alone is estimated to affect at least 267 species worldwide, with 86 percent of sea turtle, 44 percent of seabird, and 43 percent of marine mammal species impacted. Plastic debris most commonly impacts marine life through ingestion of plastic, or entanglement within the plastic itself. Not only are these numbers astounding in the threat they pose to marine life with species endangerment and extinction levels on the rise, but there is also a noteworthy impact to humans. Over one third of waters where shellfish are grown for human consumption are negatively impacted by coastal pollution.

• A straw is used for an average of 20 minutes but hangs around for a further 600 years.
• 73 percent of beach litter is plastic: filters from cigarette butts, bottles, bottle caps, food wrappers, grocery bags, and polystyrene containers.
• Nearly a million plastic beverage bottles are sold every minute.
• Some 700 species of marine animals have been reported so far to have eaten or become entangled in plastic.

Flying 15 logo
Somewhat ominously for those that develop a nervous twitch when reaching for their wallet or purse, the first 3 boats (officially) in each of the weekend’s Club Championship heats were also the newest boats in the fleet. It could have been different but for a critical retirement and a couple of close finishes that could have gone either way but that’s sailing.

Well done to Greg and Mike (The Answer) winning both heats and the much improved Sandy and Greg (Fly in the ointment) second in both. A full list of the results including consistency are at the usual place here

The amendments to sailing instructions was obviously, not high on the Commodore’s reading list for the week which saw Ffancy Classique miss the clearance mark after the windward mark while leading the fleet. The pressures of office…

Everyone has done so well, take next weekend off!!!

Rottnest Island Fuel Jetty

It’s been another busy summer on Rottnest, with record numbers of people enjoying our wonderful Island.

With increasing visitor numbers, the Rottnest Island Authority is committed to ensuring all facilities are supporting this growth.

As part of State Government funding, the $3 million redevelopment of Rottnest Island’s Fuel Jetty is underway, with tenders for its demolition and reconstruction being sought.

The new jetty will offer many benefits to the Island, including a new deck, additional power and water facilities, new finger jetties, improved refuelling/berthing for smaller vessels and an extended end platform. More details can be found at here.

Demolition and construction is due to begin in April 2020.

I wanted to write and inform your club and your members that during the demolition and reconstruction period, there will be disruptions and inconvenience for people who use the Fuel Jetty. In most cases, boat owners will need to make alternative arrangements.

If you have any queries or are seeking more information about the Fuel Jetty project, please contact our Communication and Media Manager Kent Acott on 0419 942 278 or by email here.
