The Auckland Jet Ski Riders Association is proud to host the next two rounds of the North Island Summer Tour to be held at the Tawhaa Street Reserve, Five Mile Bay, Lake Taupo on Saturday and Sunday, 11th and 12th of February.

Five Mile Bay is a great new venue with heaps of parking right alongside the lake.  It’s perfect for the use of beach trolleys however if you don’t have one you can always launch at Two Mile Bay, or Three Mile Bay just up the road.  Ramp passes cost $5.00 per day.  If you need a ramp pass you can apply online here.

You’ll need to bring your own food and drink as there are no vendors on site.  There are however cafés galore in Taupo.

DIRECTIONS TO THE VENUE

Access to the venue is really easy.   Tawhaa Street is two roads South of the Taupo Airport roundabout and the reserve is at the end of the street.

DOC REQUIREMENTS

 

A new and invasive water weed was found on a jet ski trailer launching into a North Island lake last year and as a result DOC have notified us that they will be closely monitoring the launching of ALL Skis etc.  

It is essential that ALL trailers skis and gear, especially those from the South Island (where Didimo is established) or used in Fresh Water are completely cleaned and dried before leaving home and at least 3 days prior to launching anywhere on Lake Taupo.  

We look forward to seeing you at the event.  Tell your friends and help us by advertising it on your Facebook page.
