St. Petersburg entrepreneur conquered the English Channel in a team of Richard Branson


St. Petersburg businessman, the president of Galactika Group Maxim Ivanov kite-surfed across the English Channel jointly with his longtime friend, the famous British billionaire and Virgin Corporation founder Richard Branson. Branson's team established in the English Channel a few extreme records.

 

As Maxim Ivanov told ABN, the team made a journey around 50 kilometers between the French Wimereux and the coast of Kent, and set three world records. The first record - the fastest crossing of the English Channel.  The second one - the largest team to cross the strait. And one more record - Richard Branson has become the oldest man in the world who kite-surfed the Channel (In 2 weeks Richard Branson will turn 62). Branson crossed the distance in 3 hours and 45 minutes at 5-meter waves and 30 knots wind speed.

 

According to Maxim Ivanov, after successfully crossing the Strait from the British side, the team unexpectedly met the French police. The team did not have permission to cross the French border. Sarkozy had already left his post as the new president had just received his authorities.  There was a permission signed by the English Queen to cross the Channel (According to law only the Queen of England and President of France together can give permission to cross the English Channel). French police were ready to arrest the kitesurfers, but gave up to friendly people crowded at the beach.

 

According to Russian businessman, Richard Branson just obsessed with different dangerous adventures. "He was the first who crossed the Pacific Ocean by air balloon, one of the first made round-the-world journey by air balloon. Now Branson is getting prepare to dive to the deepest point of the Pacific Ocean – the Mariana Trench and make a space flight on this own spaceship".

 

Richard Branson and Maxim Ivanov met at the meeting devoted to the billionaire’s space project - Virgin Galactic: «He learned that I’m a pilot and fond of kite-surfing. He invited me to his private island, and I invited him to St. Petersburg. It turned out that we have common interests, and I'm proud of friendship with this bright, creative person".

 

Richard Branson - one of the most successful entrepreneurs in present times, the founder of Virgin Corporation, which includes around 350 different companies. According to Forbes, Richard Branson’s fortune is estimated net worth of $ 4.2 billion. He is the fourth richest person in the UK.
