Dee Caffari MBE - Endurance Race

Posted on

Recently we were approached by Dee Caffari and her team for help and support on their recent Three Peaks Sail 4 Cancer Challenge.

The Three Peaks Yacht Race is one of the oldest and most remarkable multi-sport endurance races in the world. It is a unique event combining sailing, running and cycling; with the quirky feature that rowing is allowed in moments of calm. It takes competitors through some of the most spectacular scenery in the United Kingdom. Not only are teams required to have excellent sailing and navigational abilities, but they also run Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis, the highest peaks in Wales, England and Scotland, in only a few days. The longstanding Patron; round-the-world yachtswoman Dee Caffari, will skipper the Sail 4 Cancer boat in this year's event.

Dee Caffari has sailed around the world five times. She 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.

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.

After completing the challenge with the help of Runderwear™ Dee told me:

Hi Richard,

 

I just wanted to drop you a line regarding the support you gave the Sail 4 Cancer Team in the recent Three Peaks Yacht Race.

The underwear was extremely comfortable and pleasant to wear. As a sailor I was impressed at the qualities of the underwear and was pleased to realise that it avoided the inevitable spotty botty that an offshore sailor normally endures. I can also let you know that the runners were also happy with the quality of the underwear.

 

Thanks you for your support in this venture and I shall be recommending your underwear going forwards.

 

Kind Regards,

Dee

 

Have a great week everyone,

Healthy regards

Richard Edmonds

Co-Founder, Runderwear™

Runderwear Long Boxer

Excellent product

The Anti Blister Low-Rise Running Sock

Best Socks for Trail Running

Wore a pair during Oman Desert Marathon, only changing to a clean pair on day 5. No excessive sweating (even with the double layer) and no blister even after wearing them for almost 100km in very hot (above 40C) running condition and soft sand.
Also that double-layer gives an extra cushioning making them very comfortable for long runs on rocky trails.

Awesome Base Layer recommended for training in fresh to very cold environment

Tested the baselayer while running for 4 hours by -10C with only 1 extra layer to protect me from the wind and it kept me warm all the way. I also like to wear it for my early morning running session in the fresh Dubai winter and I don't feel to warm as it is very breathable and wicks moisture.

Perfect Baselayer

Garment material is flawless and keeps ur body warm in cold morning runs. Fit is also as per normal standards. A perfect addition to my running gear.
