Girl power!

I’ve been closely following the around-the-world sailing race, the Volvo Ocean Race, since it started back in October of last year.   Seven boats/teams started in Alicante, Spain, and have been sailing individual legs from one port to the next over the course of these last 8 months.   They have circumnavigated the globe and are driving to the end, later this month.  Tonight they will finish leg 8 – which started in Lisbon, Portugal, ending in Lorient, France.  One of the teams is an all-female crew, on-board the magenta Team SCA boat.  They have competed well, but have not yet won a leg.  Tonight they are in the brink of winning leg 8, and I am so rooting for them.   Just a little over 40 nm to go, and they are still leading the pack by 10nm and holding steady on speed.  Go Team SCA!!!

What an amazing adventure.  Check it out!
