If you would like to learn to water ski or to improve your existing skills, here’s your chance. Dr. David Cudmore has arranged to have a two day Nova Scotia Water Ski Association (NSWSA) sanctioned clinic on Lochaber Lake. It will operate out of his cottage location on the east side of the lake (close to the island), and will be conducted by certified NSWSA instructors, who put on clinics throughout the summer across the province. The school will be held on Saturday and Sunday, July 9th and 10th.
Patricipation is targeted at youth aged ten and above, but those as young as eight will be considered. All must be good swimmers and comfortable in the water. Life jackets (provided by NSWSA) will be worn at all times. Skis are also provided by NSWSA. In order to take advantage of the generally calmer water early in the day, the school is tentatively set to start at 7:30 am and run until 1:30 pm. This could be moved to 8:00 – 2:00 if the earlier start would be difficult for some to meet.
The cost for the school is $120.00 for the two days. This fee covers participants’ NSWSA membership, which includes full coverage liability insurance.

To get more details on the school, to register or if you have any questions, please contact Marie Kennedy by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 902-783-2043.
There is a possibility that, if some adults would like lessons, that could be arranged for later in the day on Saturday.
