Navarino sponsors World Record kite surf

903 602 Navarino

Navarino is delighted to announce that our sponsored kite surfer has successfully earned a world record this summer for his latest attempt at ‘worlds longest kitesurf.’ Francisco Lufinha’s challenge involved a trip of 1,000km non stop, which he managed to complete in 40 hours on the deep waters of the Atlantic Ocean under challenging weather conditions, strong winds and high swell. The route started in Lisbon, and over the course of two nights at sea, continued across the ocean to Madeira. Along the way he was supported by safety boat which followed him along the route and allowed for live blogging, videos and photos to be sent to all his followers over a Fleet Broadband terminal, the airtime for which was provided by Navarino. Panos Tsikopoulos, Navarino’s Commercial Director, said, ‘We really enjoyed being part of this challenge and are proud that a new world record was set. We are happy to have been able to contribute.’’
