In: Watford, Hertfordshire
Status: In a relationship
Something about her that you don't know: True to the British spirit, Dee loves a cup of tea in the afternoon - no matter what!
She speaks: English and French.
Who she is: A woman who knows her ocean racing. Dee has competed in the Vendée Globe, the Global Challenge, the Barcelona World Race and four transatlantic races. She is the only woman to have sailed solo around the world in both directions (east about and west about) as well as being the only female to have sailed around the world three times, non stop. Dee also holds the female crewed monohull Round Britain and Ireland speed record, a record she established in June 2009, with her crewmate Sam Davies.
What she said: “I am most looking forward to being back on a racetrack around the world. The best part of this project is working with a great bunch of girls and all working together towards the same goal.”
