Dee and Anna were the only all female crew to participate in the Barcelona World Race and they finished in sixth place, from a starting fleet of fourteen. Having spent 102 days at sea, Dee was thrilled to see a flotilla of boats ready to welcome them off the Barceloneta beach this morning.
Dee Caffari entered the record books in May 2006 when she became the first woman to sail solo, non-stop the ‘wrong’ way around the world (against the prevailing winds and currents). Dee went on to achieve a double world first three years later by becoming the only woman to sail solo, non-stop around the world in both directions when she completed the Vendee Globe race in February 2009. The Barcelona World Race has allowed Dee to achieve one more non-stop lap of the planet and add another world record to her prestigious sailing achievements.
