Dom’s new craft unveiled
Dom, 34, from Exmouth, will sail 2,000 nautical miles from Newfoundland back to Exmouth aboard a ‘kite boat’ later this summer.
Paranormal expert Uri Geller, who has helped mentor Dom during his preparations, christened the craft by smashing a bottle of bubbly on its bow.
The ‘Kite Quest’ 200 expedition is expected to take between 35 and 70 days to cross the fierce north Atlantic Ocean.
Dom outlined his daredevil plan before support staff, sponsors and guests at Elizabeth Hall on Tuesday.
Dom said: “There are no guarantees. It’s all about where the wind takes us so we will have to hope we can bring the boat back to land here in Exmouth where it was built.”

“The world needs your amazing talents. I need them”
“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
