Team Rockit - Shirley Robertson and Dee Caffari talk about their Double handed plans for the season, notably competing in the 1800nm Round Britain and Ireland race in August.

In this update we join Dee and Shirley competing in their first offshore race together, the 115nm De Guingand Bowl.

"SO SO good to be back racing at the weekend, first time with Dee Caffari in our brand new Jeanneau Sunfast 3300," Shirley writes. "SO many 3300's now, what a fun season we have in store - A bit of a shake down for the boat and for us......some strong parts during the 17 hour sprint and some parts were we sailed like lemons. Fully back on the job list and could do better list."

Next race 2nd June the Myth of Malhem.

Thanks as always to Sea Ventures (UK) Ltd for making it all possible, and all our partners - B&G, Kingfisher Rope, Fuel Cell Systems, and Zhik
