Team Kingfisher Shirley Robertson & Dee Caffari
This year we supported Shirley Robertson OBE and Dee Caffari MBE. Shirley and Dee are both extremely talented sailors, with Shirley having achieved 2 Olympic gold medals at consecutive games, and Dee is the first woman to have sailed non-stop around the world in both directions single-handedly
Shirley and Dee sailed their Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300 boat ‘RockIt’, complete with a full Kingfisher Yacht Ropes rigging package. They have taken part in the hotly contested UK Double Handed Offshore Series, building up to the 1800-mile Sevenstar around Britain and Ireland.
Below are a short series of films following Shirley and Dee’s journey throughout the last few months, from preparing their first race, to crossing the finish line on the Sevenstar around Britain and Ireland.
Lots of great shots of our ropes on board.
