Jet Ski Permits
It is an offence to use a PWC in Langstone Harbour without a valid Permit. Permits are valid for a year between 1 April and end of March and permit-holders must display the adhesive plaque provided by the Board as evidence that they have obtained a permit prior to launching. Below are the conditions of the permit.

  1. Jet skiing is prohibited in The Run (Harbour entrance) and in all mooring areas.

  2. Jet skiing is permitted in other areas of the Harbour only when navigating at or below the 10 knots Harbour speed limit (equivalent to 11.5mph).

  3. Launching and recovery of jet skis is allowed at all points of access to the Harbour. However, in The Run, the jet ski must proceed as nearly as practicable in a straight line to or from the sea at or below the 10 knots speed limit. The use of jet skis in The Run is prohibited except for access to or from the sea.

  4. The permit must be produced for inspection on demand by the Board’s authorised officers. Only permit holders or named Additional Riders may use the PWC for which the permit is issued. It is the responsibility of the permit holder to ensure that this condition is met.

  5. Persons under the age of 12 years are not permitted to operate or take charge of a jet ski.

  6. Failure to comply with the above conditions will be a breach of the Jet Ski Byelaw and may result in this permit being revoked and the Owner and/or Rider being prosecuted.
