Jetski duo on their way back

BASS Strait jetski riders Dale Quinn and Rod Wilson reached Hogan Island today on their return  Kiss Goodbye to MS funding-raising trip.

The pair are attempting a double crossing of Bass Strait and left Musselroe Bay on Monday morning.

They spent last night at Port Albert, in Victoria, and set off this morning for the return leg of their 600 km trip.

``We're at Hogan Island and are fuelling up. Conditions good, overcast but not raining,'' Mr Quinn told his Facebook followers at 10am. 

``Took about 45 mins this morning before we could see any land. Now we can see Deal Island from the water. 

``Got about 40kms to go. Probably take us about 2 hours to get to Deal Island where we will spend the night . . .''

 Mr Quinn said the pair were ``feeling tired and sore'' after completing their crossing from Tasmania to Victoria yesterday.

``It's the satisfied tired and sore that you get after you have achieved something great,'' he said.

If they complete their double crossing of Bass Strait they will become the first jet ski drivers to achieve the feat.

The pair are raising money for the Kiss Goodbye to MS charity, a branch of MS Research Australia.
