Dee Caffari (British sailor)

* Dee Caffari — the double record-holding, round-the-world-non-stop, solo yachtswoman — has sailor Neptune in adventurous Sagittarius sextile solitary Pluto, the ruler of her indefatigable Scorpio Ascendant. Caffari has a bucket shape in her chart with Saturn in Gemini as the handle. In her case, the bucket calls to mind the hull of a yacht, with Neptune signifying the base of the mast and Saturn-the-singleton resembling the top of the mast. Meanwhile, Pluto in aspect to these planets-in-opposition makes a wedge pattern that evokes the triangle of the main sail.


Denise "Dee" Caffari, MBE (born in 1973) is a British sailor, and in 2006 became the first woman to sail single-handedly and non-stop around the world "the wrong way"; westward against the prevailing winds and currents. In February 2009, Caffari completed the Vendée Globe race and set a new record to become the first woman to sail solo, non-stop, around the world in both directions.
