Welcome back to another mission video guys, this week I link up with good mate Sam Light to see if we can finally complete the kite boat rounding of the Isle of Wight. This is our second attempt at this challenge and is still and NBD (never before done) in one single sail. It is a tough challenge to circumnavigate the island, over 70 miles of open ocean, with some of the worlds strongest tides to negotiate. As many times as I have sailed around the island, it never ceases to amaze me as to how technically difficult it is... back to the drawing board for some boat modifications before the next attempt!!
We hit a storm, with winds upwards of 35knots, big waves and rain. It wasn't the ideal day for it, but we learned a lot about the boat and how we can make sure we smash it next time!!! If you have any ideas for extreme challenges this season, let me know in the comments!
