I've no idea really, but it's faster than I would have thought given how rough it is. I really am considering buying a jetski. I mean, having spoken to Paul and having read the article about these guys' trip from Orkney to Monaco, it must be the case that under the right conditions I would be able to ski from Jersey to France (supported by my rib obviously). Once in France I could crawl along the coast and get into all those shallow creeks and estuaries that I go on about. I could get miles further inland than I could with the boat.
