Lake Annecy

Has anyone experience of towing a RIB out to Lake Annecy? If so, I'd appreciate a 5 minute chat to get the get the general picture. I'm happy to call back at a pre arranged time. Thanks. Harry

Lake an nervy

Hi,Harry, we towed our rib to Lake Annecy for many years for wake boarding and water skiing. Unfortunately there is now a barrier across the slipway at the bottom end of the lake.You now have to go to the village of Doussard to the office of the Mairie to register and get the access code for the barrier. Hope that helps.

Just make sure its not wider than the French limit for towing

Ive just towed my RIB for 1762 km

Other than that, towing across France is nice and easy.
