Dee Caffari and her all-women crew are ready to set off to attempt to break the round Britain and Ireland record. On Wednesday, Dee organised a press call in Portsmouth with Sam Davies, Miranda Merron, Alex Sizer and Isabelle Joschke, but unfortunately the conditions are not yet suitable for the crew to set out. The warm, summery weather that has been felt over Britain this week is the result of a high pressure area centred between Scotland and Iceland. The weather forecasters believe this high will only slowly move off northwards and that consequently, the wind will be light or even disappear off the north-west of the British Isles in the coming days. The women are therefore going to have to wait a little while longer, at least until early next week, for an opportunity to begin their attempt.
