The world's coolest billionaire, Sir Richard Branson,  is now also the world's oldest man to kite-surf across the English Channel. Branson, 61, travelled 30 miles on his kite-surfing journey from Dymchurch, England to Wimereux in Northern France facing winds of up to 40 mph. The trip took 3 hours and 45 minutes to complete, while his son set the record for fastest time across the channel in 2 hours and 18 minutes.
