    Default Big exclusion zone for Cowes fireworks

    See http://www.southamptonvts.co.uk/admi...lay%202019.pdf

    Screenshot from 2019-08-13 16-31-13.png

    I've been for the fireworks a couple of times, anchoring either just outside the dayboat moorings or round towards Gurnard; not been for the last couple of years but I don't remember this exclusion zone in the past. Presumably it's a reaction to recent airshow accidents.

    Going to throw a few people for a loop if it's new this year.

    Are you sure that is for the fireworks. To me it reads like a closed area for the 10 minutes of the Typhoon display.

    Yes, that's right. I meant "the Cowes fireworks" as a reference to the event as a whole. Nobody talks about "the end of Cowes Week air-display".

    Looking at the forecast there's a fairly good chance it will all be academic anyway.

    As an academic I would like to say how much I appreciate the use of "academic" to mean "of no practical importance".
