Team SCA paints their home town magenta
On June 22, 2015 in Gothenburg, Team SCA crossed the finish line of the final leg in the 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race and, after over 38,000 miles of racing, sailed into their homeport in Sweden. The rain didn’t dampen the spirits of the crowds that lined the river and dockside for the team’s arrival, where they were greeted by thousands of well-wishers welcoming them home. Today marks the culmination of a project that started almost three years ago when SCA announced their participation with the first all-female team in 12 years.
Speaking after arrival Skipper Sam Davies said: “We are really, really proud of everything we have achieved. What we have done is huge, now we are racing against the best in the world and it’s an incredible feeling to have progressed this far. It’s the first time we have sailed into Sweden and that’s a pretty proud moment for the whole team. The support is amazing, and here there were people lining the river all the way along with pink flags, banners – even in the rain.”.
