Natalie Clarke: alone in the Strait

After much preparation and training, Natalie Clarke departed from Stanley in North West Tasmania at 6:30am and kitesurfed solo and non-stop all the way across Bass Straight, landing at Venus Bay in Victoria at about 4:15pm.

Natalie broke the previous record for kitesurfing across Bass Strait, set by James Weight and Ben Morrison Jack in late 2009, by 2 hours completing the trip in around 10 hours 20 minutes.

Natalie is also the first female and solo kitesurfer to make the crossing. She was accompanied by a support boat for the trip.

The total distance covered was approximately 240km.

Natalie made the crossing to raise funds for the Swim 4 All Foundation who are still accepting donations.

It's almost finals' day at Playa Llacolén. The 2018 Antofagasta Bodyboard Festival (ABF) continues in La Cupula, one of the finest boogie waves in Chile.
