I am wondering how long is it guessed at that it takes for the Sperm to reach the egg ?

Once the egg releases from the ovary, it waits for the sperm to reach it. If the sperm is released into the v____a, close to the cervical opening, than it takes approx. 6-8 hours. This is appoximate and is probably pretty close. I read this in a family nursing test book, so pretty reliable. If the sperm is released farther from the cervix it takes longer.

Due to infertility related issues, my husband and I had to do a lot of research. I have read 6-8 hours as well, but keep in mind there are really only a few days out of the month that count for conception.
