Wightlink Ferries to Introduce Water Ski Crossings

Wightlink Ferries has launched Water Ski crossings from Portsmouth Harbour to Ryde Pier. The latest offering for thrill seekers heading to the Isle of Wight for action packed adventure holidays has been introduced in advance of the Isle of Wight's Action Month. The new addition to Wightlink's product portfolio will allow experienced water ski and wakeboarders the opportunity to take to the waves from the back of it’s two fast Catamaran vessels, as they sail their regular 20 minute journey across the Solent. Sailing at speeds of up to 23 knots, skiers are sure to be tested to their limits with this adrenaline-fueled, 3 mile ride to the Isle of Wight. Available every weekend in May, the crossings will test the ability of thrill-seeking water skiers as they cross the world famous stretch of water, a major shipping route for passenger, freight and military vessels. With the Catamaran being significantly larger than the standard speedboat, up to 12 skiers will be able to ride the wake at any one time whilst friends and family travel in the comfortable passenger lounge. The Water Ski Crossings are priced from £300 per person, including equipment hire.
