THE DAY IT ALL WENT WIGHT!
Friday the 13th! was strangely the day the Motley crew finally had everything go their way, no delays, no dramas just old fashioned going off on the Isle of Wight, JC reports.
Airton Cozzolino, the innovative kitesurfer, and Gollito Estredo, the windsurf Freestyle Champ, have both used their talents on the water to escape poverty, read their inspiring stories here.
