Guest speaker announced!

More people have walked the moon than what our guest speaker, Dee Caffari, has achieved. 


In May 2006, Dee became the first woman to circumnavigate the world solo ‘the wrong way’ (against the prevailing winds and currents). Few would argue that it is an extraordinary achievement.

In recognition of her first world record, Dee was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday honours list.

As if  that wasn't enough, in 2009 Dee completed the Vendée Globe – a solo, non-stop race around the world, making her the only woman to have sailed single-handed, non-stop around the world in both directions.

Since 2015 Dee has been a presenter and producer for the online Global Women’s Sports Network WiSP Sports helping to support and promote female athletes and sport.
