In my humble opinion the last thing this country needs is more jet skis. I wish they would re think this and come aboard some of those awesome RIBs that seem to be ubiquitous on your side of the pond.

Watching their "trailer", I think they'll have better luck if they quit spinning the damn things in circles!

For a jet ski to run for 7 days must be a world record attempt.

Good luck to them cant wait to see the support vessel.

Atlantic Challenge

Hi all


Just thought I would introduce myself and the Team to you all
I do note that some off you have had bad experiences with Jet Skiís in the past. But I have to say not all are alike !! so please do not hold that against us.

Also the Team are also using 2 Ribs as support for the event as manned safety boats
And we will be posting reports on how they cope as we go on.
Our main support vessel is a super SeaCat 3 (74m) and that will have no problem in keeping up with us !!

Please feel free to ask if you need more info !!

Regards


Jay (Challenge Coordinator)
