I have been kiteboarding since 2005 when I took a trip to Brazil. Since then I have enjoyed the sport in some of the most amazing parts of the world (Turkey, Madagascar, Zanzibar, South Africa, Turks and Caicos, Morocco to name a few). Its a great sport and I feel it is time to put my enthusiasm of the sport to a better cause than just my own enjoyment.
Weather permitting Myself and a great friend and fellow kiteboarder, Wiebbe Bonsink will kite across the Strait of Dover. The direction (UK - France or v/s) will be decided closer to the time but it is expected to take around 4 hrs, with strong winds and large waves expected in the middle of the channel, not to mention it being one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world.
In 2012 Sir Richard Branson completed the same task to celebrate his 60 birthday. As long as we can beat his time (record breaking at the time), we'll be happy. Can't have a 60 year old man beat me!
Lizzie has already bought me my waterproof pouch as of course I need to keep my passport on me!
