Earlier this month, we told you about “Team SCA”, the only all-female team in what many consider to be the most dangerous race on earth… the 2014-2015 Volvo Ocean Race.

The biggest challenge facing the 11 woman crew won’t be their male competitors, but the nearly 40,000 nautical miles of the most challenging oceans and weather conditions that make up the sailing race around the world.

With only nine months to go to the start, Team SCA is in full training mode – both physical and sailing – at their camp in Lanzarote, Spain. This powerful video offers a glimpse of just how these brave women are preparing for the adventure of a lifetime.
