Red Bull Lighthouse to Leighton 2015

Period: Dec 5 - Dec 5, 2015
Location: Rottnest Island, WA, Australia

Presented by Tourism Western Australia and Red Bull and supported by the Fremantle Sailing Club, WAKSA, Rottnest Express, Kite Addiction, Cabrinha Kites and Channel 9 Perth, the Red Bull Lighthouse to Leighton race is one of Australia’s premier kitesurfing events.

This event puts the riders’ endurance and skills to the test, as it is a very demanding race. Only 115 places are available and demand to race across the Gage Roads channel from Rottnest Island to Fremantle’s Leighton Beach.

Here’s what Tim Turner, event director and experienced racer says about the event: “The chance to claim you have been the fastest racer across the ocean from iconic Rottnest Island to the West Australian mainland combined with the attractive $8950 prizemoney $4000 of unique trophies, and the bragging rights of actually achieving the crossing combine to make the race highly desirable for keen kiteboarders.”

The 2015 Red Bull Lighthouse to Leighton takes place in Rottnest Island, WA, on the 5th of December. To find out more details, please visit the official website.
