It is certainly possible. I haven't heard if anyone doing it though (although I'm sure it has been done).

It's 60 or so miles so would be a long day. Pick a nice day for it though and it could even be fun!

its been done on windsurfers, so sibs should be fine if you got big enough fuel.

I holiday in the IOW just east of the needles quite a lot and would be very interested in this.
Round by the needles and round by st Catherine's can get very choppy so would probably need some serious planning.
Would be worth it though.

"impossible" equals "I'm possible"

I am up for that on the right day, safety in numbers...
