New rules for boaters on Shawnigan Lake
The Shawnigan Residents Association is trying to raise awareness about the use of the lake when it comes to boating activities.
President, Calvin Cook says the guidelines were put together by a number of user groups, some of whom didn’t want to see any boats on the lake while others were wakeboard enthusiasts or owners of jet skis.
Cook says the rules for users should help keep the waves that hit the shore to a minimum……
The rules state big wake sports should take place in the middle of the lake or at least 100 feet from shore.
Cook says a better boat launch is on the bucket list….
Cook says they will also look at what to do with regards to the youth who are diving from the launch where swimming is not allowed.
