Motorists are urged to park their vehicles away from the coastal road and take a bus to Houghton Bay. Houghton Bay School is providing a limited amount of parking in their grounds and at Houghton Bay Park as a fundraiser for their new hall.For those of you heading out in a boat, there's a few more things you should be aware of - head over to the official site to find out just where the best place to view from the water will be.
The Island Bay launching area and car park will be reserved for police and officials and closed to the public from 6am to 6pm on the day of the sinking. South Coast boat ramps are likely to be extremely busy and spectators should consider using other ramps.
Motorists are being warned to watch for pedestrians between Princess Bay and Island Bay, park legally and keep off footpaths and areas of vegetation.
No road closures are planned, but the Council will put up signs to warn residents to expect traffic delays.
Northerly 25 knots gusting 35 knots, easing to 10 knots in the evening. Rough sea easing to slight in the evening. Mostly cloudy with brief light rain in the afternoon.If it's Northerly, it needs to get below 20 knots for the whole shebang to happen. Fingers crossed.
