Wonderful result in 2016 and 2017
In the past two editions, a relatively 60 and 110 well-trained kitesurfers competed with the elements. The defied 130 km over the harsch and sloshing North Sea for research into cardiovascular diseases. They sail along the most iconic beaches of the Netherlands: Kijkduin, Scheveningen, Noordwijk, Zandvoort, Bergen aan Zee, Egmond and Den Helder. The kite surfers and a total of 4200 donors raised the first two editions to a total of 47,000 and 95,000 euros! A fantastic result that we of course want to double again this year!
An overview and photos of the first two editions can be found on our Facebook page. The distance and the heroic character of this trip, the presence of district chiefs and stamp posts made this event the sister of the legendary Elfstedentocht. In short, the Elfstrandentocht was born!
