Water Ski & Wakeboard Canada wants to encourage more people onto the water

Canada's national water ski organisation has unveiled its first ever chief executive officer in a bid to promote the sport.

David Patterson was appointed to the newly created role by Water Ski & Wakeboard Canada. It believes he is the person to lead the group and "grow the sport from the local lakes".

"I am honoured and excited for the opportunity to become a part of Water Ski & Wakeboard Canada and the dynamic, growing towed water sports community," said Mr Patterson.

He added: "Towed water sports have been a vital part of the Canadian summer experience for decades, and we are going to work to ensure that more Canadians get out on the water, whether they are out a few times a year with friends or if they are striving to join the world champions on Team Canada."

Wakeboarding and water skiing also hold plenty of appeal for people visiting Canada on holidays.

However, before taking to the water people are reminded to take out sports travel insurance to help secure peace of mind in the event of something going wrong on the water. But it's not just watersports holidays that need the right insurance - get cover for everything from skiing to scuba diving with World First Travel Insurance.
