Vendee Globe: One Woman Today

I mentioned Dee Caffari hadn't had a surfeit of videos recently, so in the interest of fairness, here is the latest video of Dee now making her way up the Atlantic. You can see the obvious relief that she has survived the Southern Ocean. Unlike the ever positive Sam Davies, Dee has been scared, depressed, elated and underneath it all, determined. Hats off to her and she has prevailed despite a mainsail shedding large bits and the worry that she may be sailing with a mast hiding a fatal flaw (Mike Golding, with an identical boat dismasted below Australia). She is in eighth place at the moment, in a pack of three.
