lake Annecy v lake Geneva for summer hol with watersports

We are a family with teenagers, all into a range of outdoor activities. Planning trip to haute savoie early July, with time in mountains, but also looking for a lakeside base - can anyone advise on which may be better for watersports like waterskiing, and general beach ambience, Annecy or Geneva?

Any particular "resort" recommended?

From what I've seen when I visited in June, I would recommend lake Annecy with its beautiful scenery. There were lots of water sports going on, mostly in lake Annecy, but waterskiing was the least practised in both lakes during my visit.

Also Annecy is closer to Mt Blanc.
