Sailing - 07. June 2007.

Dee Caffari and crew compete in the Calais Round Britain Race.

Dee Caffari, the British woman who in May 2006 set the sailing world alight
by achieving a 'world first' for solo circumnavigating the world against the
winds and currents, has embarked on the first step in her next quest.

Caffari and her Open 60 yacht 'Aviva' are competing in the Calais Round
Britain race. Caffari's strategy is to use this and a series of other races
to hone her skills in Open 60 racing, building up to taking part next year
in sailing's elite solo race, the Vendee Globe.

skipper of Aviva

Nigel King - British, yacht racing expert and Open 60 trainer
Liz Wardley - Papua New Guinea, professional sailor
Simon Clarke - British, professional sailor and former captain of Hugo Boss
