Any boaters who use the dock at the Amsterdam Riverlink Park during the events should be aware of excessive wakes generated by boats participating in the events and will be docking at their own risk.

Boaters should reduce speed, stop all forward motion, and proceed at a "No Wake" speed when approaching event participants and under no circumstances shall any vessel exceed 5 MPH.

Additionally, during the months of June, July and August, practice sessions may occur at any time.  Boaters using the Amsterdam Riverlink Park docks should adequately bumper their boats to protect against the expected wakes from ski boats.
