The event is on Saturday 9 December, with Sunday 10 December a
Kiters are taken over to Rottnest Island by ferry with their gear, then they set up and kitesurf 19km back to Leighton Beach. Many do it as a race but I will be there for the experience and aim to have some fund on my Nugget board.
I will have Friday to do a trial run - hopefully meeting up with Natalie Clark who is doing the event for a second time.
Its the eighth year the race has been held and there are over 140 participants so it will be busy on the water. I am looking forward to it.
