British yachtswoman Dee Caffari was lying in 16th place in the Vendée Globe fleet as she enjoyed a champagne breakfast to celebrate crossing the line of longitude for the Cape of Good Hope (18° 28′ 19″ E).

  

Dee Caffari's latest diary entry received on Monday 8 December at 08H15 GMT:

‘Well thanks to Champagne Mumm I enjoyed a champagne breakfast onboard Aviva as we crossed the line of longitude for the Cape Of Good Hope. We are now in the Indian Ocean and our next milestone will be the next Ice Gate.

‘Light winds slowed the progress to the first of the three great capes and a calm night gave way to some great sleep. I am pleased to say that the breeze has now started to return so progress can be made and hopefully I have not lost too many miles to the fleet as I enjoyed the sleep and the champagne. I also toasted my Mum for her birthday as I popped the cork.'
