Llangors Lake

Hi All,

Im thinking about buying a small speedboat, probably about 50HP - first timer

Does anyone know what restrictions Llangors lake has? I found an old copy of their regulations (2003) and saw this....

Quote:
A speed limit of 5 m.p.h. applies to all powered craft (other than safety craft) not towing a skier, or showing a red flag.
What does a red flag signify? Can i just hoist a red flag and hammer it around the lake?!

Does anyone have any experience with the facilities at Llangorse? Can you get moorings there?

Either that or does anyone have any other recommedations for South Wales. I need to be able to moor the boat there on a long term basis and enjoy the occasional bit of fishing.

As I said I'm a newbie to the whole boating thing - any other more general advice would be appriciated.

Thanks
Jeff

Thanks Gav,

The 2005 rules mention a speed limit for water skiers..

Quote:
15) A speed limit of 8 kilometres per hour (5 m.p.h.) MUST be observed at all times unless towing a skier or inflatable or recovering a skier from the water.
Does that only apply to water skiers or (heopfully not) everyone?

i think its just a ski lake, not a lake you can go and play on! Where are you based?

Just called Llangorse - you're correct. They only allow speedboats if you're pulling a waterkier behind you
