SEA sports enthusiasts, from anglers to divers and sailors, are invited to have their say on the future of the North Devon marine area with a drop in day next Wednesday (March 10) at Instow.

The event will be held by the Finding Sanctuary project at the North Devon Yacht Club from 10am-8pm.

The project has been consulting sea users throughout the South West for information and views so that commercial and leisure interests can be taken into account in the planning of new Marine Conservation Zones set to come into force in the next couple of years. Such zones could limit leisure and commercial use of the sea in some areas. Restrictions could include no anchoring areas, speed limits and no take zones.

Along with groups already consulted, Finding Sanctuary would like to hear from more kayakers, jet skiers, surfers, kite and wind surfers.
