Water-skiing

Water-skiing

At the moment, there are no clubs registered with the British Waterski Federation (BWSF) in the Milford Haven area, the nearest being the Penarth Waterski Club in Cardiff. The only official ski school approved by the BWSF in Wales is the Offaxis Wakeboard Academy, near the Lleyn Peninsula.

Waterskiers are welcome on the Milford Haven Waterway providing they keep within the rules and zoning system as set out in the Milford Haven Waterway Leisure User Guide.

There are five designated areas for waterskiing and towing inflatables within the Haven.  The area above the Cleddau bridge is perhaps the most popular of the five. It should be noted that this area can become conjested with towing vessels as well as through traffic so care should be taken. A few simple steps should be followed when skiing or towing inflatables within the waterway. All towing vessels should have a driver and a spotter. Also the use of recognised hand signals is recommended as well as raising a RED flag if the skier drops the tow.
