Who in their right mind wants to spend 90 days
in the saddle of a Personal Water Craft (PWC) riding from the frozen wasteland of Alaska to the sunny climates of Florida? With a Guinness World Record at stake, Marinus du Plessis and Adriaan Marais plan to do just that, starting from Anchorage on the Alaskan coast on 15 June 2006.
The current record holders are a team from Australia who circumnavigated their continent in 2000, a distance of 16 400km in 106 days with a full back up team.

The challenge is to tour the Americas, some 13 500 miles (21 600km) in just 90 days on a pair of jet skis - without a support crew.

The route will take the intrepid pair from Alaska and down the West Coast of continental USA, heading past Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and smaller Central American countries. Nipping through the Panama Canal to Cancun where the current world record will be broken. After the celebrations the duo will continue to Miami.
