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!
