Yachtswoman Dee Caffari is the first and only woman to sail single-handed and non-stop around the world in both directions and the only woman to sail non-stop around the world three times.

Dee Caffari entered the record books in 2006 when she became the first woman to sail solo, non-stop the 'wrong' way around the world (against the prevailing winds and currents).  When taking this route, the extreme conditions make solo sailing exceptionally difficult and it is not surprising that many compare this degree of difficulty to reaching the summit of Everest without oxygen.  Dee went on to achieve a double world- first just 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 2009.  Completing the Barcelona World Race (2011) meant Dee achieved a third non-stop lap of the planet - the only woman to do so - and so Dee adds another world record to her prestigious sailing achievements.  Not bad for a former teacher who only took up sailing in 2000!  Dee continues to enjoy offshore challenges and she recently competed in the Volvo Ocean Race (2014/15) with an inspirational all-woman crew Team SCA.

One of Britain's most inspirational women, Dee Caffari is also an experienced and popular international speaker and host.  Dee delivers engaging and inspirational talks tailored following a client briefing and the reviews are glowing whether it is for a prestigious small client dinner, a huge conference keynote, a celebratory Awards ceremony or a product or venue launch.  Dee's warm delivery brings her story and the drama and challenges of her world-record-setting voyages alive.

‘The top-line stats for Dee were great - I was really pleased and she went down a treat with the audience.  From the evaluation forms we received 94% rated her excellent, and the other 6% good. Dee was highlighted as the highlight of the conference by many people too. She was great and very engaging.  Overall, really chuffed and a good recommendation - much appreciated.’
