IAN DIPPLE LAGOON
DEDICATED 4 MARCH 2000
This lagoon was named after Ian Dipple, in honour of the world champion water skier, who was tragically killed in a skiing accident in November 1999. One of his greatest achievements was winning the Sydney bridge to bridge race with the use of only one arm due to a tendon injury. This area is where Ian spent most of his time training and racing as part of his 20 years of tireless dedication towards the sport of water skiing.
