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:
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.
Have a great week everyone,
