New Malta-Sicily Windsurfing Record


Paul Ellul - Pic taken from the Times of Malta

This afternoon Paul Ellul broke the long standing record for windsurfing between Malta and Sicily. He managed to knock 1 hour 9 minutes and 26 seconds (I think my maths is correct there!!) off the previous record doing the crossing in 4hrs 47 mins 34 secs.
Jean Paul Fleri Soler was the previous record holder doing it in 5yrs 56mins 35secs.

This event was in aid of the Community Chest Fund. You can see more about the event on this LINK

So, I suppose the race is on again - who is next up to attempt the break the new record?
