The driver must be 15 years or older. A younger person can drive the boat but must be directly supervised (i.e. in the adjacent seat) by someone who is at least 15 years old.The observer must be at least 7 years old.You must keep your speed to under 5 knots while within 200 m of the shore or 50 m of another boat. There is an exception for ski lanes and certain other designated areas and access lanes.If youre like me, the only time you ever operate in a ski lane is when no one else is there Otherwise you end up skiing in everyone elses wakes. But if you are operating in a busy ski lane, you should exit to the right (standing on the shore looking to the water) and enter again from the left, i.e. operate in an anticlockwise direction.
