From Turkey to Cyprus

Lena Erdil given the green light to begin epic journey from Turkey to Cyprus

Lena Erdil (Patrik / Point-7 / Mystic / AL360) currently sits second in the PWA Women’s Slalom World Rankings, but for the moment she has her eye on a slightly different project. The current vice-world champion is set to partake in an epic challenge in which the Turkish beauty will attempt to sail from Turkey to Cyprus.

A snippet about Lena's mission: “Hello Team. We have been given the green light for the Cyprus project! The forecast looks favourable on the 12th-13th of this month, so Monday/Tuesday next week and we are ready to take on the challenge. 

This crossing has never been attempted on a windsurfer and I will have a support boat with camera team to follow me on my trip . 


Our media team organised by Red Bull will have the story, pictures and videos of the crossing ready shortly after hopefully successful completion of the project. 


I have never attempted a long distance crossing like this one before and I will just have to keep my fingers crossed for favourable conditions, i’m really excited to finally make this project happen doing a long distance crossing has been a dream of mine for quite some time now!”
