  • Latest Attack on Water Sports



    https://spotsylvania.novusagenda.com...&MeetingID=293

    There is an attempt to make a 200' setback on Lake Anna, va. Much of the Lake (almost everything north of the 208 bridge for those who are familiar with the lake) is narrower than 600' with several less than 400'. That essentially puts everyone who wants to do any sports into one area of the lake, competing with Large cruisers, high speed jet and go fast boats, and those unfamiliar with the parts of the lake north of many bridges (which happen to be the best parts of the lake for ski and board sports).

    Any advice on how to fight this?

        Question...how can Spotsylvania County change the ordinance for a lake that resides in 3 different counties, of which they are only 1?

          Based on what I've read, Spotsylvania intends to change the ordinance then petition DGIF to accept the change for the entire lake.

            I saw this article when searching for something else this morning.

              That is a really disturbing article, unfortunate part is the skiers who are not part of the problem are being further restricted regardless.

                This is just the start . As the manufactures are building bigger and bigger surf barges and owners that don't know or care what happens after they pass by. I expect more and more governmental control of the water. I live on lake Lanier GA not a small lake with 700 miles of shore line.. There is plenty of room for all even the 55 footers if a little common courtesy is applied. Unfortunately there is very little courtesy or driving skill here. We travel all the way across the lake to a small secluded ski cove only to find a surf barge in there tearing it up. I would be livid if I had a dock in there. As the latest fad [Wake Surfing] dies out I wonder how many rules and regulations will carry on long after the surf barges are gone?
