This is just a sampling of Dee Caffari’s achievements under sail from her website:
”In 2006 Dee became the first woman to sail solo, non-stop, around the world against the prevailing winds and currents and was awarded an MBE in recognition of her achievement.
Dee successfully completed the solo, non-stop Vendée Globe Race in 2009, crossing the finish line in 6th place out of an original fleet of 30 competitors. April 2011 saw Dee complete her third non-stop circumnavigation in the double-handed Barcelona World Race. In 2014, as part of Team SCA taking part in the Volvo Ocean Race 2014/15, Dee secured the Round Britain and Ireland Speed Record for an all-female crewed monohull of 4 days 21 hrs 39 secs.”
