The Crossing, Andreya Wharry’s world record-breaking attempt to kitesurf 70 miles from the Isles of Scilly to the Extreme Academy at Watergate Bay, is underway.

Dreya and six of the world’s top 10 kitesurfers (including current world champion Cindy Mosey) and three windsurfers set off this morning from Tresco at 11am, and are due to arrive at Watergate Bay this afternoon at around 4.30pm.
