Across the Bay to Conquer Cancer

After lots of training and preparation, tomorrow I and 24 other kitesurfers will attempt cross Port Phillip Bay from Rosebud to Port Melbourne on Australia Day.  The journey will be around 90km, we hope to complete it in around 3 to 4 hours.

The wind forecast is good so we are all set to go.

We are carrying safety equipment including PFDs, PLB/EPIRBs and SPOT tracking devices. We also have boat support.

This will be a marathon trip - please wish us luck!

Thanks Rick. If you are kiting off Hampton keep an eye out for us coming past mid afternoon. Should be quite a sight - 25 kites around 2km offshore
