Dee Caffari modelling polo shirt

In another Boatshed.com extravaganza of generosity, we have teamed up with the good guys at Aviva Ocean Racing and Fat Face to quite literally offer you the chance to win the shirt off Dee Caffari's back.

As many of you know, Dee has been battling the vagaries of the Atlantic in the Artemis Transat and has faced high winds, no winds, exhaustion, frustration and elation (a normal day in the office then?).

HUGE Congratulations to Dee for finishing her first solo race and arriving in Boston, America 16 days, 5 hours and 2 minutes after leaving Plymouth.

Fat Face is now exclusively selling the Aviva Ocean Racing Team Kit and we have some fantastic polo shirts to give to 5 lucky Boatshed.com friends. This kit is what the team wears, what Dee wears and genuinely is the real thing. Just think - you too could stand out a mile away on the water's edge as we gather later in the year to wish Dee well on her mammoth epic race, the Vendee Globe (only 166 days to go!!).

To win, please send an e-mail to wolf@boatshed.com explaining (briefly) why yellow is your colour and giving us your favourite moment on a boat.

Keep up to date with all of Dee's challenges through Aviva Ocean Racing

So why is Boatshed such good friends with Dee?
It started getting serious when Boatshed Performance (A partnership with Owen & Clarke Design) brokered the deal for her first IMOCA Open 60 (the first Aviva, formerly Hellomoto) Since then the tailored brokerage service for racing yachts, like the Open 60 's and Class 40 's, has been growing in reputation.
We catch up with her at every boat show, the guys at Boatshed Plymouth even waved her off when she started her latest race to Boston, but unfortunately we couldn't get the Boatshed Boston team to greet her this time as we're still looking for the right boating mad people to set up the Boston Office.
