Circling Antarctica while experiencing violent shivers is just one of the challenges facing this 13- women Volvo Ocean Race team which began its sailing trek from Spain to Sweden in October.
Scott Neuman details this gutsy international team’s journey to get into the race and find a sponsor at npr.org. SCA, a global personal hygiene and forest products company, stepped up to the plate and came up with “the estimated $15 million to $25 million it costs to mount a competitive campaign,” writes Scott.
We say, “Go Team SCA!” Best of luck completing your eight-month sailing adventure. Bravo to SCA for sponsoring them. We’ll be following your amazing race on Twitter!
