Boat Launch (added 02/05/24)

The boat is now on the lake ready to start the 2024 season. The water is still a bit chilly at 12c, however the driver rota starts on Tuesday 7 May, with a driver on duty from 18.45 on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, and from 13.45 on Saturday and Sunday. To ski outside of these times simply contact one of the drivers to find out their availability to give you a tow.

We’re looking forward to helping everyone have a great experience at the club, and there’s always coaching available from the drivers to help you improve, whatever your discipline.

2024 Membership Renewals (added 09/04/24)

2024 Membership renewal invitations have been emailed to all 2023 members. If you haven’t noticed it. check your Junk mail folder in case it landed. Also, note there is a new membership category, ‘Recreational Member’, for swimmers and SUP users.

Update on the jetty replacement project (added 09/04/24)

New foundation piles for the replacement jetty walkway are in place, however, the poor weather and high water level has halted the construction work resulting in a delay to the start of this year’s season. When the water level drops the work will continue and, weather permitting, the walkway will be available for use at the beginning of May. Hopefully by then the weather will have improved and the water temperature increased. 

New boat for the 2024 season (added 13/03/24)

The boat is one of the most important assets the club has and for the 2024 season we will take delivery of a new Ski Nautique 200. Looking forward to seeing everyone skiing behind this beauty.
