Non-Stop Kiting

Published on 15.06.2008 - Notice Expedition

The three men of the Notice Expedition have worked a series of wonders in terms of the distances covered with their traction kites. Their adventure is now coming to an end.

By the time this statement is published, it is more than likely that Philip De Roo, Eric Schlameisen and Joop Bovens will have finished their adventure and reached Greenland's town of Qanaaq without let or hindrance.

During the last ten days of their trek, the three Dutchmen covered astonishing distances thanks to their traction kites. On 2 June, they progressed 151 km. Two days later, on 4 June, they covered 165 km, and, a further two days later, they had put another 145 kilometres on their clock! Enough to quickly reach the coast of course...

On 13 June, they announced that they had been slowed down by overly light winds - and sometimes even headwinds - but added that they were only a few days from the last stretches of their trek and that they had just seen the sea!
