North Sea Crossing

Stunning skies last night in Lowestoft last night when Hercules was launched for today’s charter…

Solent Rib Charter’s 9m cabin Rib will today be supporting the North Sea Crossing record attempt by Windsurfer Ron Kleverlaan. Ron has attempted this challenge before back in 1990, however due to changing weather conditions he was unable to complete the crossing.

The crossing from Lowestoft to Bergen aan Zee on the Dutch Coast covers 105 nautical miles and is seen as an outstanding and challenging performance for many watersport fans.

Ron’s goal is to complete the 105 nautical miles in less then 5 hours on his windsurf race board. Hercules will be acting as his support vessel for the crossing. Follow his progress and find out more through the North Sea Crossing website.
