''Learn to ski day'' along Mississippi River

Posted:

DUBUQUE (KWWL)-- The weekend hot weather means many people are spending time on the water.

Saturday, the Dubuque Water Ski Club hosted ''Learn to Ski Day'' on the Mississippi River.

25 people from ages five to 65 took part in the free clinic.

People of all skill level had the chance to learn from land and then hit the water.

The ski club also took some time to teach basic water safety.

"Some people come down and are new to the river. And don't know much about actual rules of the river, as in hand signals and stuff so we work with those people as well," said Water Ski Club President, Greg Kubitz.

The club has partnered with the city recreation department for more than ten years to put on the clinic.
