Record breaking round the world yachtswoman Dee Caffari is skippering Aviva in the RORC Rolex Fastnet race... The Fastnet race is the next stepping-stone in Caffari's Aviva Ocean Racing campaign, as she progresses towards her ultimate goal of becoming the first woman to sail solo around the world in both directions. Starting from Cowes, the Fastnet race is considered to be one of the world's classic ocean races, the course will take the fleet around the historic Fastnet Rock, south of Ireland, and then on to the finish line in Plymouth. We will be bringing you photos and blog entries from Dee as she races. So stay tuned...
