BOATING AND SWIMMING AROUND BEACH 1…

Many boaters pull up to the left of Beach 1 and beach their boats to enjoy activities at the Clubhouse and swim at Beach 1. When these boats leave Beach 1, they have to back away from the shore before they can proceed forward away from Beach 1 and the clubhouse area. At the same time, people sometimes swim outside of the “No Boat” buoys at Beach 1 behind the boats beached at the Clubhouse. Additionally, people getting in and out of boats that are beaching at the Clubhouse and walk or swim to the shoreline around and between the beached boats. These activities can create a potentially hazardous situation where people swimming behind or between boats are not visible to the boaters.

Both swimmers and boaters need to use extreme caution when near the boats beached at the Clubhouse/Beach 1 area. Boaters need to be on the lookout for people that may be next to or behind their boats when backing away from the shoreline. Boaters also need to be careful of other boats entering and exiting this congested docking area. Swimmers need to be aware that boaters may not be able to see them and should not swim behind or between beached boats, except when entering or exiting a beached boat.

This potential conflict between boats and swimmers could happen anywhere in the lake, so both boaters and swimmers must be observant of each other and take care not to get in each other’s way. Let’s have a safe boating season this year! See you soon on the lake.

BOATING RELATED SERVICE PROVIDERS…

Lake Committee has received many requests from both new and old “boaters” for a list of Boat Service Providers used in the past here at Lake Holiday. This list is NOT an endorsement of any named provider by either the Lake Committee or the Association. Boaters need to perform their own due diligence when selecting a contractor or service provider. If you have a recommendation to augment this list, please let the office know so the list may be updated.
