Meet the Double Handed Dream Team

This article comes from Sea Ventures (UK) dealer

Two of Britain's most decorated female sailors will be teaming up for the upcoming 2022 Double Handed Offshore Season.

Dee Caffari and Shirley Robertson will be sailing together throughout 2022 in the UK Double Handed Offshore Series, racing a new Jeanneau Sun Fast 3300 supplied and sponsored by  Sea Ventures UK Raceyachts Division. The pair will be racing in seven offshore races throughout 2022 culminating in the gruelling 1,805nm Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland Race.

Shirley and Dee will be sailing in a newly delivered Sun Fast 3300, the boat both sailors raced throughout last season's offshore series. The Sun Fast 3300 is one of the go to race yachts of the growing double handed scene, and will be provided by Nigel De Q Colley's Sea Ventures UK...


Nigel says:

Sailing in the same fleet as Dee and Shirley throughout the 2021 season was gripping, their media output was excellent, so with both their co-skippers moving to new  projects,  it  made complete sense to invite Shirley and Dee to race together for 2022. Sea Ventures UK and Jeanneau are hugely proud they accepted the challenge, and have placed their trust in the Sun Fast 3300. This will be a fantastic new team to watch and race against. Even better, I get to race against them around Britain in my own Sun Fast 3300!! Bring it on!!"
