I took a look at these buoys today and there were boats anchored inside the yellow buoys which are very long way off shore and cannot be claimed as for swimmers protection

Interesting point,
Wonder what the legal( duty of care ) outcome would be if some swimmer drowned going too far out to the bouyed off area so far from shore thinking that because its a swimming area its safe to do so or is there any safety cover lifeguard ect .

Yes two were used as mooring buoys, one being a J109 yacht who had folded his spinnaker around the forestay, we were able to help him with a yacht skipper with me

There were about three boats moored with anchors inside the area still a long way from shore, but there was a very small red SIB/RIB from a yacht pulling kids in a ringo in this area

If they were to mark a swimming area they'd be much smaller and more of them, my guess these are marking a boundary and the next step will be EH trying to enforce a no go zone as they're not content with just stopping boats landing on the beach, they want rid of them from view.

...unless they are of genuine Victorian design and construction and crewed exclusively by people in period dress - preferably with scurvy and syphilis.

Although to be fair things like the refinery are more of a problem for the view than a few boats.

All quiet is osbourne bay. Megaphone man is without his megaphone and standing arms crossed on the beach. 3 boats anchored 50 yards from the shore. Only problem is the suns not shining now we are here

You've hit the nail on the head, they set a precedence and then get a bye law, exclusion by stealth.

Went and had a look at the buoys in Osborne Bay yesterday. I was surprised how far out from the shore they were.

No sign of megaphone man. We did enter the buoyed area, after checking carefully for long distance swimmers, just to see if he would jump out from under the shrubbery :o)
