So, this isn’t strictly windsurfing news, but it does involve windsurfers and an incredible feat of endurance.

The SUP 11-City tour was set up by windsurfer Anne-Marie Reichman and now sees hundreds of paddlers taking to the water to cover an incredible 220km. This year it’s been great to see so many British windsurfers taking part, and doing pretty well too!Marie Buchanan took top honours in the women’s fleet, leading by a very credible seven minutes!

In the men’s feet Sam Ross managed a fantastic 14th place finish, with fellow Brit Charlie Jones just behind in 16th. It looks like Sam may have paid the price for his dedication though, as Ali Pereira shared on facebook…

Sam Ross' hands, the worst blisters ever seen!?!?
