Yesterday Team SCA left Newport and headed back across the pond to their training base in Spain. Their transatlantic crossing to Newport was the first for the all woman crew who is training for the 2014-15 Ocean Volvo Race. The 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race which will begin in October 2014 is a race that takes sailors around the world to ports including Cape Town, Abu Dhabi, Auckland and....Newport, Rhode Island! Newport is very excited to be the only American port on the race's course and will welcome the boats to Ft. Adams in May 2015. Just another reason why Newport is a world class sailing destination.
