Check out the incredible kitesurfing dad! Sam Lutman-Pauc is taking on the massive challenge to kitesurf across the English channel to France and back - all against the clock!

Although you will be attempting to gain the record for the fastest return journey, will you have time to step ashore for a quick bite of cheese and wine?
