Neil Hutchinson of XRATED KITEBOARDING and Key West to Cuba Crossing fame has worked hard to bring a unique kiteboarding event to the world. It is the first ever kiteboarding race from Florida to the Bahamas across the Straits of Florida.

Neil has lined up some accomodations in Alicetown on North Bimini including:

The Complete Angler bar is a classic with great drinks, conch fritters and island music at night.

The launch area in Florida is still under consideration along with predicted wind conditions at the time of the Crossing and could range from

Once you're on Bimini, go nuts or just hang out. It's good for that and a great deal more.
