Hi
There is to be a water ski and wakeboard trail for one year on Breydon Water. It will be allowed from sunrise to sunset at any time of the year except for 30 minutes before and 2 hours after low water (predicted astronomical tide) at Great Yarmouth Yacht Station.

There are other changes and revisions to other water ski and wake board areas on the Broads. These are in the printed EDP Public Notices 29 November 2012. I can't find an online version.

Wakeboarding trails and formalised areas for wakeboarding to include manoeuvring and momentarily leaving the water are listed as well.

Bear in mind Broads Authority issue time table predictions and they don't always match Shorebase.

Thanks for the heads-up.  Does anyone know if this includes donuts or other inflatable towed toys?

Hi
Donuts and inflatable ringos etc have never been allowed.

Note the water sking and wake boarding is for registered vessels with a permit only.

Oh ok, thanks. So it's out to sea and turn left then!?  Sea Palling-bound I think.

Why do these blessed people feel the pressing need to further subjugate the good folk of Broadland?

I suspect that water-skiing has been going on on Breydon for fifty years or more. So now they want to go to the utterly pointless expense and bother of having trials, why?

Have there been problems with skiing on Breydon during the past fifty years? Breydon is the obvious Broads venue for skiing and wake-boarding.

Wise people leave well alone.

If you recall, which you do, Breydon was nothing to do with the BA until this year and my guess is they are merely formalising it. Cannot see a lot wrong with that and to some probably seems eminently sensible but not of course to those who want to moan about the BA. Smile
In future it may lead to this activity being banned on some of the river sections nearby and surely you would agree this could only be an improvement?
Or perhaps not?

Well, here's a bit of light reading for you.

Marshman, sometimes you're just too sensible for your own good  Smile

Not a case of just moaning about the BA, more a case of moaning about what they are doing. Water-skiing has taken place on Breydon for years without problem, why not simply accept that? We both know that once a trial and a review takes place we are talking endless officers reports and the inevitable cost. Authority for the sake of authority? Bureaucratic nonsense? It wasn't needed last year, so why is it needed for next year?

Certainly an interesting document Paladine, thanks for the link.

Nice to be able to read accurate details from the horses mouth, rather than speculate wasted expenditure.

Probably the view of the majority as well MM..     Wink

All a question of mindset, I suppose. Some folk need to be told what to do, some folk need to tell other folk what to do, and some folk just want to be left alone to do their own thing. There are some who see bureaucracy as a way of life, indeed a career, there are others who see it as a pain in the butt. A relevant comment? You decide.
