If you were going to try it then best keep to the starboard side as much as possible and cross there. But 4 and half people may be a tad iffy, depends like others have said on conditions. Perhaps find out when race likely to be running and drive round to the ferry point sandbanks end, there is a small car park so you can have a decent look.
I run a ski and a rib and take offence to your comment, the last couple of idiots I've witnessed on the water were driving ribs!
It's never the craft it's ALWAYS the human element!
I'd also be interested in how many people are injured on PWC's compared to other watercraft, unfortunately I don't need to tell you that ribs have been recently in the news for the wrong reasons
Oh, FYI, I and a couple of mates on skis recently spent two weekends on the Solent entertaining a group of children from Belarus CCLL - The main page
who were staying on the island, we covered all expenses ourselves and the children went away with huge grins , we aren't all w##nkers
