SCA Does It Again!

13MAR15 – Team SCA does it again! Team SCA can now claim to be the only multiple in-port winners in the 2014-2015 Volvo Ocean Race after sailing a strong finish in this latest in-port race in Auckland, New Zealand.

The all woman crew sailed their Volvo 65 aggressively right down to the finish. Team Brunel maintained hot pursuit, but failed to outmaneuver or out-sail the ladies. Ms. Sam Davies (GBR) skippered SCA. Captain Davies executed a satisfactory start, but improved her team’s prospects with brilliant tactics leading to a strong sprint to the finish line.

   

The current overall VOR series race results puts team Abu Dhabi Racing in the lead of this global sailing contest. Leg 5 of the 2014-2015 Volvo Ocean Race has been delayed due to weather, but the offshore portion of the race resumes early this week. The VOR fleet will sail Leg 5 to Itajai, Brazil. Good luck and good sailing SCA! Photos courtesy of Anna-Lena Elled and Victor Fraile
