The pink racing boat

Who the hell races a pink boat? The girls, of course

The boat is the ex-Puma. The boat has been modified. The team is sponsored by SCA (SCA team) and it seems that they are for real. The one that is selecting the team is Magnus Olsson a Six-time VOR race veteran and they are already testing.

It seems that the ladies (professional sailors) interest for the project is huge and two groups were formed to select the best and given the names on the first group I guess that the boys are going to have competition (lots of solo sailors).

Some names: Sam Davies (Open60), Jeanne Gregoire (Figaro), Liz Wardley (VOR) and a lot of Girls from Match racing.

I hope the second group is as strong as this one

You can hear Sam Davies talking about the project and the see the first images of the Girls sailing fast:
