Lighthouse to Leighton kitesurfing event 2017

I have been invited to participate in the Lighthouse to Leighton kitesurfing event. I have wanted to do this for a while so I jumped at the chance.  Flights and accommodation are now booked.

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.
