    Very interesting.
    I would like to know more about the kite and its handling. There is almost none information on the handling and performance of the kite at the site.

    Amazing anybody would cross an ocean in something no bigger than a dingy. I have 70' boat and can see myself going to Bermuda by myself. But at least she doesn't have to pay for gas.

    This crossing was successfully completed June 2006.

    Isn't strange there is no entry in Wikipedia? Dom Mee, who failed in 2005 is there, but not Anne Quemere.
