Lack of wind halts Richard Branson kitesurf cross

Richard Branson: insert another coin, please

Richard Branson tried again, but no luck. The Virgin boss could not kitesurf cross the English Channel in the second consecutive attempt.

The weather conditions, again, did not help Branson and mates to break the records.

This time winds weren't strong enough to help the entrepreneur become the oldest person to kitesurf the Channel, as he celebrated his 60th anniversary.

Richard Branson admitted that the biggest problem was simply to get off the beach. No wind, no glory.

But the Virgin tycoon won't certainly give up of writing his name in the Guinness World of Records.
