Kite Quest 200: Across the north Atlantic… by kite!

​In 2005 Dom Mee undertook an incredible mission to create several world ‘firsts’ by crossing the North Atlantic in a kite boat. Find out what happened in this amazing story.

The Epilogue

Little Murka Recovered!

When Little Murka was savaged by the worst hurricanes in recent memory, thereby putting a premature end to KiteQuest 200, the waterproof camera that recorded Dom’s video diary entries from the stricken vessel was considered lost. However, when the apparently unsinkable Little Murka was washed up on the shores of Ireland the camera—incredibly—was found to be intact.
