Dee Caffari is quite possibly the hardest woman in the history of sailing.  We don’t need to list her accomplishments here, other than to tell you she was the first – and only – woman to solo circumnavigate in both directions, including an Eastabout trip in a monster steel boat.

Clean Report For the longest time, I was boycotting the America’s Cup.  Despite Bermuda’s proximity to the US and kind invitations for us from a number of teams and sponsors, I didn’t want to lend any legitimacy to a venue that, in my opinion, represented a betrayal to America and all those fans who’d supported Ellison […]
