A 14 year old British boy is thought to have become the youngest person to kitesurf across the English Channel.<br />
<br />
Adam Farrington battled 25mph winds and a rough sea to complete the 69 mile journey between Poole in Dorset and the French city of Cherbourg in five hours and 19 minutes.<br />
<br />
He endured a dozen 'wipeouts' in treacherous conditions but stuck gamely to his task, pushing through the pain barrier when his legs started cramping 10 miles from the French coast.<br />
<br />
His perseverance paid off as he eventually reached the beach, by which point he was so exhausted he could no longer walk.
