Andy Ward is the first kitesurfer to complete the cross from the Channel Islands to the coast of England.

The British kitesurfer from Dorset departed from Alderney and arrived in Poole, where he lives.

Ward made the 70 nautical mile race in almost six hours in aid of the Special Boat Service Association (SBSA).

He raised £3,000 so far. Congratulations to Andy Ward and his achievement.

Portugal is known worldwide for its beautiful beaches, food, historical monuments, nice weather, and friendly people. But the westernmost European country is also a popular wave riding destination.
