Kiting Across Oceans

At The Starting LineTwo weeks ago, challenge lover Anne Quemere set off from the small port of Paita, in Lima Peru. The object? To cross the Southern Pacific Ocean alone and without assistance, from Peru to Papeete in French Polynesia.
But unusually, the crossing is being attempted in a boat powered only by a kite. The boat is made of epoxy resin, glass, carbon and airex foam, and is 6 metres long and 1.9 metres wide.
The crossing should be completed in two to two and a half months, depending on weather conditions. The distance is approximately 4200 Nautical miles (7778 km) and is a first for this type of navigation.
Anne says:
"This new challenge aims at seeking out the best technology without sacrificing essential values we always have in mind : quality, effectiveness, safety, environmental respect and honesty."
Good luck Anne!
