Annalise to join Dee Caffari’s crew on ‘Turn the Tide on Plastic’ Volvo Ocean Race boat

Mirpuri Foundation “Turn the Tide on Plastic” boat have announced two more female sailors for their Volvo Ocean Race campaign – Irish Olympic silver medallist Annalise Murphy and New Zealand’s Bianca Cook. Both under 30, the pair join skipper Dee Caffari’s mixed and youth-focused campaign after successful trials, and take the total number of confirmed sailors in their squad to 10 with just 44 days to go until the start of the race.

“Annalise and Bianca both add strength to the squad and are developing quickly,” said Caffari. “Coming from an Olympic background, Annalise’s strength and racing skills are obvious, but she is still learning about life offshore…She added: “The Volvo Ocean Race will certainly offer a challenge, but it’s one that they’re certainly up for. It’s a pleasure to see them loving every day on the boat.”

“The jump from Olympic inshore sailing to professional offshore sailing is a big one,” said Annalise. “I am expecting this race to be the toughest thing I have ever done both mentally and physically but I also can’t wait for it to start.”
