The stage is now set to offer London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic sailor’s clear access to what are regarded as some of the best sailing waters in the world.  The Harbour Revision Orders (HRO) for Portland and Weymouth Harbours are required to ensure that the sailing waters are safely managed during the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games were approved by Parliament in July and came into effect from this August.
 
The HROs pave the way for the management of the waters of Weymouth Bay and Portland Harbour by giving special powers to various marine authorities to manage the water space during the summer of 2012. Whist there will be controls over the exclusion of non-Olympic boats into the sailing race areas during race times, the HROs also make provision for marine users. In doing so the aim is to achieve a balance between allowing access to the harbours, whilst also ensuring that the designated areas (known as the Field of Play) for the sailing competition in 2012 are properly managed and controlled whilst the races are being held.
