British yachtswoman Dee Caffari and her all female crew onboard Aviva have had a successful first night in their attempt to break the record for sailing around Britain and Ireland. Having departed from Gosport at 6pm yesterday, the crew crossed the official start line off Ventnor on the Isle of Wight at 21:09:36 and is sailing in an anti-clockwise direction.Dee commented: "It’s been wicked. We are really on the pace and worked hard overnight dodging shipping in the English Channel with lots of maneuvers and sail changes already. Earlier today, Caffari and crew were approximately 10 hours ahead of the pace required to beat the outright record. We wish them luck, especially as two of our offshore sailor chicks – Sam Davies and Isobel Joschke are part of the crew. Pic from Lloyd images and more here.
