    Hello

    I'm currently organising an expedition in aid of a UK charity. The trip is going to be 30 days long, with an average of 12 hours a day on the move and the required speed of the vehicle should be roughly 6 mph (total length 2010 miles). The capacity of two people is required 100kg average PP. Advantages such as easily portable on aircraft are also a plus.

    I've contacted several manufactures with little success, the craft does not have to have accommodation as this with be provided by a mother craft that will be close buy. But it does have to be stable and yet able to maintain the 6 mph.

    Does anyone know of the craft that might meet the specification?

    These won quite a few races years ago before they folded. Maybe they are in business again?
