The Lighthouse to Leighton 2014 will be raced on the 6th December, 2014, in Australia.

Australia's longest open-ocean kiteboarding race should attract 110 riders to the Indian Ocean waters for a 19-kilometer challenge.

The Lighthouse to Leighton marathon race takes off from the pristine waters of Phillip Point on Rottnest Island and concludes at Leighton Beach, Fremantle.

"I'm expecting strong interest from interstate and international kiters for this year's race as its reputation grows around the world," explains Tim Turner, race director.

"There will be more than $12,000 in prize money and trophies up for grabs with equal cash prizes for the three fastest male and female kiters, plus, for the first time, prize money for the fastest three Twin Tip Racers.

Marvin Baumeister, the 2013 champion, will return to the Lighthouse to Leighton race to defend his record time of 23 minutes and 50 seconds.
