All-Women Team SCA Competing Around the World
Have you heard of Team SCA? Team SCA is the first all-women team to travel and take part in ocean races around the world. They have just traveled for 9 months in a show of strong femininity and perseverance while competing it the toughest ocean races. .
SCA (learn more about them below) announced in 2012 that they “would be committed to bringing women back off the land and into sailing in the world’s toughest ocean race – the Volvo Ocean Race.” There had been a 12-year gap since women had competed in the extreme event. Team SCA's squad was selected from over 250 worldwide applicants. The final 15 range from solo round-the-world sailors and record breakers to Olympians all with one goal: to coax female sailors back to the race.
What is truly amazing about Team SCA's legacy is that in a male driven sport, these women spent 9 grueling months racing to prove that they can not only exist in this sport but they can compete as equals.
On the 11th June 2015 the culmination of over two years of extremely hard work and perseverance paid off for Team SCA, as they crossed the finish line in Lorient, France to take their first leg win of the Volvo Ocean Race. It was a remarkable and historic moment for women as it was first time in 25 years that an all-female team has taken line honors in this, the most extreme of offshore sailing races.
