Patrol Proceedures and Information

Why Patrol?

Water-skiing in Langstone Harbour is reviewed on an annual basis by the Harbour Board. The LHWSA was formed some 20 years ago at the Board's request, to carefully control and organise water-skiing. Each association member is required to carry out one 4 hour patrol per season, thus assisting the Harbour Board with policing the ski area.  At the end of the season the total number of patrols are given by the Harbour Office to the Harbour Board.

In the event of consistently poor patrol records, and subsequent safety, the Harbour Board COULD stop ALL water-skiing. It is therefore entirely up to us as association members to comply with the Patrol regulations if water-skiing is to continue in Langstone Harbour.
