HTC Atlantic Kite Challenge
A team of six kitesurfers will try to make the over 6.000 km (3.200 nautical miles) crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in two or three weeks depending on the weather, between November and December, 2013.
The group, formed by Bruno Sroka, Filippo van Hellenberg Hubar, Camilla Ringvold, Mark Abma, Max Blom and a sixth rider, will take the South Atlantic route, from the port of Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands to the Caribbean, in a 24-hour non-stop relay session. This will be the world’s longest downwind adventure, so stay tunned!
Here is the first introduction in how the Atlantic Kite Challenge is set up.
