  The previous Guinness world record for the farthest distance covered on a jetski in 24 hours is 1,641.43 km (1,019.94 miles) and was achieved by Ivan Otulic (Croatia) on a SeaDoo GTX IS jetski starting and finishing at Njivice on Krk island, Croatia.

  Guinness World Records also recognized The fastest 1000 km on an aquabike (jetski) record: 10 hours 9 minutes, set by Juan Felix Bravo Aguilar (Spain), at the San Juan marsh, San Martin de Valdeiglesias, Spain.

  Another related Guinness World Records listing is for the longest ever journey on an aquabike (PWC): 17,266.69 km (10,729 miles), by Adriaan Marais and Marinus du Plessis (both South Africa).

 'At the end I was tired and elated,' said Burfoot, age 51. 'There's not too much physical damage as I have been training for this for years and wore all the right gear courtesy of Makz Gear, the Sea-Doo dealer which provided outstanding support to our team, The Ultimate Ride Charitable Trust.

   'The mental concentration was the hardest – I am still doing laps in my dreams, so I hope that stops shortly!'

  Burfoot credits his physical training with enabling him to break his target distance of 2200km.

   "I train hard with weights, core strength exercises, cycling and lots of hours on the skis [short for jetskis, another term for PWCs]," he says.

  Burfoot is a long-time and passionate campaigner for healthy living and cancer awareness and again used his latest adventure, the successful record attempt, to promote these causes.

  Burfoot dedicated the 24-hour distance ride to good friend Maree Brierly who has just been diagnosed with cancer. 'I found out about Maree only the day before the ride. It just makes me more determined to continue fighting this disease.'

  Sea-Doo personal watercraft are made by Bombardier Recreational Products Inc. (BRP), based in Canada, , and represented locally by BRP New Zealand, a division of BRP Australia Pty Ltd.   

  BRP New Zealand manager Richard Shaw congratulates Burfoot on another successful adventure with Sea-Doo.

  'Jeremy is passionate about personal watercraft and using his various adventures to convey important messages about taking care of our health,' says Shaw. 'We're delighted for him and his team to achieve another of their goals on a Sea-Doo, and we look forward to hearing what they have planned next!'

  The 2010 model year Sea-Doo GTX Ltd iS personal watercraft used by Burfoot features a 1500cc Rotax 4-TEC engine designed specifically for marine use. The trademarked S3 hull – stepped, stable and strong – is noted for its stable ride while being 20% lighter and therefore more fuel efficient than competitors' products.

   Ultra-low engine emissions and BRP's patented D-Sea-Bel sound reduction system combine ensure the Sea-Doo has the lowest possible environmental impact.
