The Amazing Women Of Team SCA

The Amazing Women of Team SCA

Everyone should have the opportunity to live life to the fullest. Living life to the fullest means different things for different people. For some, it can mean achieving what others might feel is impossible. One of these achievements for some women is competing in the Volvo Ocean Race, which is the world’s toughest sailing race.

Female empowerment: enduring it all

Team SCA is the first all female racing team for ten years. This extremely brave and strong group of women encounter some of the most unbelievable experiences in order to remain in the race. Team members have endured riding in boats going at terrifyingly rapid speeds, and one racer was even bitten on the face by a flying fish. Despite trying conditions, these women are fighting hard to remain in the race.

Amazing Women Everywhere Campaign

Team SCA has a photo mosaic available, which enables anyone visiting the website to honor a special, inspiring woman in their life. In my case, that person would be my mom! It’s super easy to use the photo mosaic.  All you have to do is upload a photo of a special woman in your life and explain what makes her so special. You can honor any woman for any reason, because like the campaign says, there are amazing women everywhere.

For anyone interested in following the amazing women that makeup Team SCA, daily updates can be accessed through the website. Not only can followers see videos and photos of these tough women in action, but they can find out so much more in depth information about their entire journey.

Not everyone, male or female, is strong or motivated enough to withstand what the women of Team SCA do on a daily basis. In attempting to win this race, these women must withstand treacherous waters in addition to many other unexpected obstacles. Not only does participation require a great amount of stamina, determination and physical and mental strength, but it also requires a person who is willing to make sacrifices in order to ensure they are living their lives to the fullest. To these women, living their lives to the fullest means proving they are strong, brave and capable. The women of Team SCA refused to be considered weaker because of their gender, which is why they have vowed to do whatever necessary to ensure that they not only remain in the race, but that they win the race, if at all possible.
