Poole - St Malo Record attempt

A French Revenger pilot wants to create a record from Poole to St Malo in 2009. What other records exist between England and France ?

Which looks like it will run next year, so that might be another outing for him as well.

Strange route for record?

This seems a strange route for a record so has probably not been 'set' officially.

It would be good if we could have an official list of records and maybe an unofficial top gear style board where you can post your own times for set routes.

Here are some suggestions

Needles - Cherbourg outer breakwater
Needles - St Peter Port
Needles - Braye
St Helier - St Peter Port
Gorey - Carteret
Round Isle of Wight
Round any Island you may wish to circumnavigate (my definition it would have to be habitated to avoid having too many little islands)

Oh I like it The RIB.net leader board. Times could be verified with GPS data or webcams perhaps?

Can there be two tables? One for time and one for fuel used?

Its a good distance over interesting water and the paperwork is easier than a UK - France route.

Poole - Cherbourg

I remember this record being held by a couple of friends in the early 90's. The brothers Norton, in a Boston Whaler 21 Outrage with twin 90 2/strokes!!

Does anyone know if it still stands?

I think a couple of guys on a pedalo with a crate of Red Bull beat that one in the 2000's.
