Re: VOR / SCA Racing

So, you might remember that we were speculating about what the future might hold for Justine Mettraux, the phenomenal Swiss Mini 6.50 sailor who finished second in the Series class behind Aymeric Belloir.

Her sponsor, TeamWork, announced they would be launching an IMOCA 60 program for a future Vendée Globe, and there was some question whether Justine might be tapped for the skipper slot.

But now we see that she has been added to the Team SCA Volvo Ocean Race team! What a terrific and well-deserved opportunity. Not only will she gain tremendous experience, she will get to race alongside some of the best sailors in the world (male or female). No doubt she will have a very promising career ahead of her.

Chapeau, Justine!
