An evening with Dee Caffari | Royal Geographical Society | Wednesday, 18. September 2019

Please join us for 'An evening with Dee Caffari' - a SES charity event on Wednesday 18th September 2019 at the Royal Geographical Society, London SW7 2AR.
Dee Caffari MBE has sailed around the world six times. She is the first woman to have sailed single-handed and non-stop around the world in both directions. She is also the only woman to have sailed non-stop around the world a total of three times and has completed more non-stop circumnavigations of the globe than any other woman. Outside of sailing, Dee continues to showcase her talents in other areas such as TV and radio presenting, motivational speaking and supporting her chosen charities.
Dee recently led ‘Turn the Tide on Plastic’ – the first mixed gender youth team to compete in the Volvo Ocean Race 2017/18. She used this global platform to raise awareness of the single use plastic issue in our oceans and continues to highlight the vital importance of reducing our dependence on plastics and inspiring people to take action in their day-to-day lives.
Delivered in an engaging and humorous style, Dee’s talk will chart her journey from secondary PE teacher to world record setting professional yachtswoman. With a focus on her most recent project promoting youth opportunities, gender equity and sustainability, Dee will share her experiences, insights and personal lessons learnt in an authentic and entertaining way.
The talk will be preceded with a drinks reception and followed by a raffle raising funds for SES.
