Farthest From The Coast

Given the Scilly Isles are about 20 miles off the mainland.....what's the furthest anybody has been off the coast?
I've RIBed to the Isles, but at 20 away it as only ever 10 away from the coast.
Farthest RIB?

For me, Erin and Martini: Paris, at just over 80 nautical miles from the coast as the crow flies (and considerably longer as the river winds!).

Nice one Biff. How are you? I was out with Dr Jan last night and as expected it all got rather messy and it was a Monday School night!!!
Anyway. the furthest that anyone can be from any land anywhere in the world is 1750 miles and that is in the Pacific. I do intend to get this record next year.

I'm doing alright Al, not drinking or eating much in the way of solid food but I'm not worried too much, it will come, I've lost a lot of weight, got the same body I had 30 years ago, all them years of abuse gone to waste, the way I look at it is I can do it all over again
