Seabourn Conversations, Featured Speaker
Dee Caffari MBE is the only woman to have sailed solo, non-stop, around the world in both directions. She has now sailed around the world a total of six times and become one of the most successful and recognised British offshore sailors.
Awarded an MBE in recognition of her solo circumnavigation against the prevailing winds and currents, Dee set a world record by becoming the first woman to complete this ‘wrong’ way round voyage in 2006.
Dee went on to compete in the 2008/9 Vendée Globe – a race around the world, non-stop and alone, crossing the finish line in 6th place out of 30 competitors. Having seen the impact on our Ocean’s Health first hand, Dee is now a prominent ocean advocate.
