Dom Mee has chosen to unveil his revolutionary new craft for the first time in Taunton on Tuesday 28th June, between 12 and 3 pm. The craft will be traveling from the Exmouth boat builders Rowsall & Adkin on Tuesday morning and will be displayed on the West Side of Market House throughout Tuesday afternoon. Dom is very keen to unveil his craft in Taunton to highlight the crafts association with Somerset businesses & his personal bond with the charity Dr Barnardo’s.
This is the only ocean-going Kite vessel in the world. It has been entirely produced here in the South West with the support of Devon & Somerset businesses, such as estate agents Wilkie May & Tuckwood.
Exeter’s Westerly Mini’s sponsorship has provided Dom’s team with vital transport over the last two year enabling his team to be continually mobile during the ever demanding planning phases of the project.
Dom and his team also want to thank Esporta gymnasium in Taunton for their support package which has aided Dom in his preparation for this epic adventure. Many more businesses have helped along the way, and their logos will be dispayed on Dom’s boat during his record breaking attempt.
Full details of the project’s exact route have not yet been released. However Dom Mee says:
“This is an epic project, my hardest challenge yet. I will be crossing an ocean in a vessel powered only by kites. This is truly into the unknown. I really like that”
The Kite Quest 200 craft will be loaded into its sea container late July to be shipped to Dom’s start point. We will of course keep everybody informed as the project’s true scale is released to the outside world.
