Dee Caffari appointed Ocean Safety ambassador

Ocean Safety has appointed round the world sailor, Dee Caffari MBE, to represent the company as an ambassador for its ranges of lifesaving products, while supporting a strong message of safety awareness.

Dee is the first woman to have sailed single-handed and non-stop around the world in both directions, and the only woman to have sailed non-stop around the world a total of three times. She’ll provide evaluation and feedback on the company’s products as she pushes sailing’s ultimate boundaries. Placing her trust in the capability of the lifesaving kit she and her crews will be using, endorses Ocean Safety’s reputation for quality and reliability.

In 2006, Dee became the first woman to sail solo, non-stop, around the world against the prevailing winds and currents and was awarded an MBE in recognition of her achievement. She recently led Turn the Tide on Plastic in the Volvo Ocean Race 2017/18, the first mixed gender youth team to compete in the iconic round the globe event.

“We are incredibly honoured to have Dee Caffari on our team here at Ocean Safety,” says Managing Director, Alistair Hackett. “Dee will help us to continue with our campaign of improving safety awareness amongst the boating community. She is skilled at making the importance of safety at sea the norm.”

“Creating the right culture, with trust and reliability in the equipment and with each other, allows a team to push the boundaries of performance with confidence,” says Dee. “I hope to help promote this way of thinking and to continue to challenge and encourage innovation with new technologies. I want to help develop continuous improvement with honest and open feedback within the safety parameters for sailing.”
