It takes three to ski. 

If you’re towing someone behind your boat, Jetski or other personal water craft, whether they’re on skis, a wakeboard or biscuit, you must have an observer aged 10 or over who can communicate the actions of the person being towed.

Anyone being towed must wear a lifejacket and you can only ski between sunrise and sunset.

As a skipper you need to:

  • Keep to designated ski areas (or make sure you are more than 200 metres offshore).
  • Always have an observer who is more than 10 years old.
  • Always tow in an anti-clockwise direction.

The designated ski lanes and ski areas throughout the region give priority to these activities.
