SCALOR15-RT0136Whether it was a case of the girls doing way too good a job of delivering value for their sponsor or simply continuing fallout from the corporate perk scandal that claimed the scalps of numerous top SCA executives, the Swedish paper giant has officially turned over the keys of the Volvo 65 to Knut Frostad and ended their sailing sponsorship as of Friday.  According to executives we spoke to, the program exceeded every ROI metric available, and with the new CEO a trimaran sailor and longtime SA reader, we hoped for more.

The girls have split into separate groups as they hunt for sponsorship for a host of different projects, and we hope and expect them to pop up at the Vendee Globe, the next VOR, the World Match Racing Tour, and possibly the Extreme Sailing Series, as well as scattered throughout the offshore fleet.  Adios, girls, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us – and tens of thousands of little girls around the world -  something special to cheer for.

Here’s what they wrote on Facebook:

The whole team would like to thank each and everyone of you for the amazing support over the last three years. We couldn’t have done this without you. The squad will continue the momentum that Team SCA has started with the ultimate goal to find a new sponsor. Thank you for sharing this journey with us ‪#‎weareteamsca‬ ‪#‎justthebeginning‬

Also, a fond farewell to SCA’s Team Doctor, Antonio Zoido, one of the nicest, smartest, and most helpful people we’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.  He died suddenly on Sunday.  RIP.

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.
