    Video: Finnish Rider Sets World’s Record For Longest Open Ocean PWC Journey



    All of us have wanted to tour Europe at least once, but how would you feel about doing so via Sea-Doo? This time last year, Finland’s Risto Piispa was doing exactly that, as he was attempting to set the Guinness World Record for the longest unsupported open ocean journey by aquabike (ie. jet ski). Piispa left from Helsinki to Ceuta, Spain, totaling an impressive 3,074 km (1,659.8 nautical miles; 1,910 miles), as he circumvented all of Western Europe.

    Okay, the key word is "unsupported." And I couldn't find an explanation of what that would--or more accurately would not--entail. I mean, sure, the word is self explanatory. But I don't see any extra fuel on his ski and he almost certainly would need extra fuel to make it to some of the refueling points.

    Do you have any inside information on this?

    I want to do some of these extra long runs myself!

    Of course Guinness doesn't provide the criteria on their own site. Here's all a search would render:

    Thanks for trying! Alas, there is no information to be found about the refueling and distances between refueling stops. *sigh*
