The 4,340-mile race signifies the next step of Caffari's rapid development into
competitive Open 60 racing as she prepares to compete in the Vendee Globe
2008/09 and become the first woman to sail solo around the world in both
directions. The Aviva Ocean Racing campaign is planned to culminate with her
entry into the 2008/9 Vendee Globe. This race is contested by ocean racing's
elite, is regarded as one of the world's most gruelling sailing races.
Caffari's campaign will include a series of IMOCA (International Monohull
Open Class Association) Open 60 races throughout 2007/8 in preparation for
her entry into the 2008/9 Vendee Globe. The new purpose built race boat for
