Cross channel windsurf

Hi there,
Myself and 4 other windsurfers will be attempting the first cross channel crossing in the first week in September. There will be good media coverage (Extreme sports in sky to name but one and we require safety cover in the form of 2 ribs.
As it is in aid of Breast cancer research we really need the boats donated for that day with an experienced driver.
CAn you or anyone you know help. It will be great publicity as it is being featured in many magazines.
Please email me if you interested
Best regards
Justin

Where would departure point be in the UK, and planned arrival point in France? (or would you be crossing the other way?)

Board size

Hi there,
We are going across on quite large boards 2.85 and big rigs 6.5m-8m as we are not going to try and beat a record but more cross it in one piece. The conditions will ideally be F4 SW
