Kentish Aquatic Club

Kentish Aquatic Club Lake BarringtonThe Kentish Aquatic Club is a water sports club with an emphasis on water skiing and was formed 1st March 1971 and incorporated in 1983. Since inception we have grown steadily to a current membership of around 100 persons including their off-spring.  The current membership status is nearing full.

The Club is very active during the summer months November – April but as the water temperatures of Lake Barrington begin to drop below comfort levels and Tasmania’s winter approaches, on shore working bees and social activities take over.
