While most of us think that we are in control and life is great, on some occasions we are hit by a life issue and find that we are not coping. It is then vital that we seek support to help us get through this tough time. 

A group of us are going to jet ski a loop of Bass Strait, from North West of Tasmania to along the coast of southern Victoria, covering 1,700km in eight days. We are doing this in support of Lifeline Tasmania, who provide ongoing and vital support to Tasmanian's in need.

Help us get behind this great cause by making a tax deductible donation to Lifeline Tasmania today. The team pay all our own costs for the adventure, so that every donation goes toward supporting the mental health of all Tasmanians.

Thanks heaps - Dave Gray, team leader.

Map of the intended route

Our team of jet ski adventurers will embark on a 1,700km ride and will brave Bass Strait, twice in a loop.

The odyssey will start at Stanley on Saturday 24 April and finish at Bridport – eight days later, weather depending and all being well.

We intend to spend the first night on King Island before crossing the northern section of Bass Strait to Apollo Bay in Victoria. From there, we’ll do a return loop to Port Campbell, then on to Portarlington, St Kilda, around Phillip Island, Inverloch and Port Albert.

Travelling south across Bass Strait and homeward bound, we’ll camp on Deal Island, stop at Whitemark on Flinders Island for fuel, then travel in a direct line to Bridport, Tasmania.

A team member can tow another jet ski in case of a breakdown, but it increases their fuel consumption so each jet ski will carry enough spare fuel to travel approximately 300kms.

The group will have two on-ground support vehicles and will overnight in local accommodation along the way. We are all members of  jetskitas.com and we love long distance adventure riding. You won't see any of us annoying people at the local beach!
