It may be completely correct that "As it is narrow, the wake etc will have an impact on birds right across the Lake." If so, is that impact of any significance? However I wonder if that is an issue of relevance to the "Lakes Officer". Not every thought in government or community processes primarily revolves around maintaining tranquillity for birds. If we find there is something COG can say of significance, then fine, do so. About "beyond belief", I wonder. Maybe many residents love the idea of water skiing. Do we know? The alternate plan requires substantial ecological and economic costs for these people to travel great distances to do their practice elsewhere.

I must disagree with you that water skiing and water boarding (I assume the "Lakes Officer" knows so little about the activity that they don't know the usual name is wake boarding) are not torture.
How even TAMS could consider these activities so close to residences is beyond belief. As it is narrow, the wake etc will have an imapact on birds right across the Lake.
