The lake is approx. two metres deep and buoyed courses of 400, 750 and 1500 mtrs have been set up.

Waterland strongly recommend the use of a tow float to aid safety and make you visible. The use of tow floats is mandatory for those people under eighteen even if they are wearing wetsuits, unless they are in a coached session or event in which the safety procedures have been approved.
It is mandatory for those under eighteen to be accompanied by a person in loco parentis.
