British yachtswoman Dee Caffari, 36, onboard Aviva celebrates as she sets a new world record as the first woman to have successfully completed a solo, non-stop circumnavigation both ways around the world.
The jubilant solo skipper and former PE teacher crossed the Vendée Globe finish line after 98 days at sea.
She has been sponsored by the world's fifth largest insurance group Aviva since her first world record voyage in 2005/06. She started her current race, the Vendee Globe on 9 November 2008 from Les Sables d'Olonne, France. The Vendee Globe, often known as the 'Everest of the Seas', is an extreme 27,000-mile challenge through the Atlantic and the notorious Southern Ocean.
