The Pacific in  Kiteboat - 2011

Anne Quéméré offers herself the Pacific
Sails Magazine - May 31  2011

Departed March 3 from Lima, Peru,  Anne Quéméré is off to a good start  make a successful Transpacific to  from Tahiti on his new kiteboat.  Despite transmission damage  helm, its habitable prototype of  6 meters moved by a traction wing  progressing well, with a record  of 86 miles on April 30, then 50  to 60 miles a day in early May.
After the unstable winds and cross swell encountered in the first
  third of the course, it benefits  now with a well-established trade wind  of 18-20 knots and approaches the last  quarter of this 4,200 mile road  in the best conditions.
So much the better because it will not be the most
  easy, the Quimperoise will have to negotiate the crossing of the Tuamotu archipelago  and its low atolls on the water. Cherry  on the cake, she  will have to do it  the old fashioned way, without any help  exterior, unless his father  fails to reach her by sailboat  around the archipelago - on time  where we write these lines,  he is about to leave Tahiti. Anne  is in fact deprived of any means of  satellite communication since the end  of the month of March, and his team must  just follow your progress  thanks to its Argos beacon. On May 6, she has when  even been able to speak via VHF  with  a merchant ship diverted by the  MRCC (Maritime Rescue Coordination  Center) Papeete, confirming that his  morale was high. As a matter of fact,  no one doubted it when they saw  the reassuring route traced on the map.
Anne Quéméré is in the process of achieving a very fine
  transpacific despite its damage... In the image  feats of the past!
