The first group of candidates for the all-women’s SCA Volvo Ocean Race team left Southhampton for their training base in Lanzarote yesterday, and judging from the quality of the sailors, this ain’t no publicity stunt-seeking campaign.  You can check out some video of the departure here as well as words from some of the girls, including our favorite racer of all time; Sam Davies.  Will our extreme disappointment losing Sam from the Vendee fleet deliver a silver lining in following the exploits of Cap’n Sam for the next two and a half years?  One can only hope!  We also hope that the second group of candidates – due in to the Canaries in a few weeks – will include at least one of our awesome American racers.  Photo thanks to Rick Tomlinson/SCA.
