Private Boat Owners

130 acres of dedicated water ski and wakeboard lakes. If you want to use your boat to ski, ride, kneeboard or ringo on clean and calm water, look no further. You have found a location that in the UK is unique…

Lake 1: Dedicated to tournament and club water skiing with a homologated slalom course & ski jump – probably the best slalom water ski lake in the world!
Lake 2: Main club wakeboard lake with wakeboard sliders. It also has a slalom course (short and full course) for club members use during tournaments.
Lake 4: Private boat owners use.
Lake 5: Private boat owners use.
Lake 6: Private boat owners use (also has a slalom course).

We allow a maximum of 12 boats to operate on the Lakes at any one time, (including the 2 club boats), and this policy provides everyone with plenty of water.

Boat Types and Driving Rules

The maximum size boat you may launch at Tallington Lakes is 22 feet in length. For safety reasons we much prefer dedicated ski and wakeboard boats, (as opposed to boats with outboard engines). Please carefully study our Boat Driving Rules which will be provided to you at registration. Compliance with the Rules will be strictly enforced, which can be read here.

Please note that any person driving a boat at Tallington Lakes must hold an SBD2 (previously SBDA) Licence

Out of Bound Lakes

The Windsurf Lake and Lake 2 are out of bounds to all boats with the exception of licence holders who have obtained prior permisiion in writing. This is to allow for access (at low speeds) for mooring purposes. No unauthorised craft are permitted at any time on Lake 1, (the Club Lake).

Launching is not permitted from the Sailing Centre, only the Main slipway may be used.
