What is the best, most economical speed to get to the slalom course?

In theory, after reading many boat tests in Boating Magazine, it would be slightly faster than at plane, so I would say around 24 mph.

 

This would take about 8 minutes to get there. But, if I am skiing first, I'm with Jipster, go like a bat out of hell to get a good first set!

I've done a fair amount of long distance cruising each summer on Shuswap Lake, and in my last three CC 196s, the sweat spot has always ended up being between 27 and 30 mph (I haven't been out of a course with the 200). For what it's worth, if you are doing long distances, your engine will appreciate it if you vary your rpm even slightly every 10 to 15 minutes.
