Japanese Water Skis Are Speedy (Nov, 1934)

Well, they certainly look speedy…look at him go!

Japanese Water Skis Are Speedy
COMMONLY associated with northern climes, skiing has invaded the Orient with the successful introduction of water skis. The skis are tip-tilted pontoons propelled by the common gliding stroke and aided by special ski poles. Recent tests of the skis in Yokohama harbor developed a speed of 200 yards per minute.

    SPEED TABLES- CANOES

    NO WIND
    TIME MPH MPDay
    Beginner 1 4-6
    Experienced 2 10-12
    Expert 3 14-18

    An expert canoer can go about 3 mph, or about 65 yds/minute and this thing can do 3 times that?
    Doubtful.
