Dom Mee has joined Tracy Edwards' crew aboard Maiden II on her delivery trip to Doha
Dom Mee, the yachtsman and adventurer who recently canoed solo to the north pole, has joined Tracy Edwards’ crew aboard Maiden II on her delivery trip to Doha Qatar. The team which set sail yesterday from Southampton would have experienced some fairly exciting conditions last night as she out of the Channel but looking at the weather charts, conditions should improve slightly, down to 15-20kts, as they head south towards the Bay of Biscay.
Once across the Biscay, Edwards’ 33.50m catamaran will head into the Mediterranean, through the Suez Canal down into the Persian Gulf to Qatar where she’ll be based for the next few years to promote Edwards’ £38 million four-year sailing sponsorship deal with the Gulf State of Qatar see previous news story here.
The trip to the Gulf should take just under a month.
