2017 Kitesurf Odyssey Azores - Mainland
Portugal to Mainland September 2017
2017 is the year of the largest and Ultimate Odyssey in the Portuguese sea. The objective is to connect the Azores to the continent, kitesurfing - more than 1500 km of Atlantic Ocean in its most savage state.
With departure scheduled for September 2017 and a minimum duration of 5 days, this crossing will be the most vulnerable to weather changes, accumulated fatigue and danger at sea.
The distance is so great, that a motor boat has no possibility to follow. This led the support team to follow the Kitesurfers on a sailboat, free from fuel and environmentally friendly, meeting the project values.
The cherry on the cake is the invitation of the Kitesurf world record holder - Anke Brandt to share miles during this long odyssey. The German has the world record for the longest kitesurfing journey, with the 491 km Mark Mark for 30 hours between Bahrain and Abu Dhabi in 2016.
