About 15 years ago I was a member, for a short time, of the British Disabled Water Ski Association. I used to water ski behind fast boats but never really got a chance to sit in one and enjoy the thrill of speed on the water. You might be right in thinking that surely being towed behind the boat I was experiencing the same speed and yes that would have been the case had I not fallen in the water all the time. So, a trip down to JBSKI near Thorpe Park in Surrey organised by BBC’s The One Show.!
The boat in questions was a ski boat with a big V8 engine, which I liked the sound of!
I placed the obligatory life jacket on and held on. I was surprised there was so much power. The boat launched hard and before I knew it I was at the other end of the lake. My driver, James put the boat into a hard right turn and floored it. Amazing, another one ticked of the list!
