Resource description

In May 2006, Dee became the first woman to sail solo, non-stop around the world against the prevailing winds and currents, completing the Aviva Challenge. Having won the 2007 Raymarine YJA Yachtsman of the Year Award, Dee plans to enter the 2008/9 Vendée Globe round-the-world yacht race. Leeds Met is delighted that Dee has chosen a team of sport scientists from Leeds Met's Centre for Performance Sport to support her physiological, nutritional and psychological preparations for the challenge. The team, led by Professor Carlton Cooke and with performance coaching advice from Malcolm Brown, will work with Dee in the build up to one of the world's most physically gruelling sailing races.
