PYC Magenta Day


The Magenta Project was formed by the sailors of TeamSCA, the first all female team to compete in the Volvo Ocean Race in twelve years. In June 2015 TeamSCA made history by being the first all female team in 25 years to win a leg of the race.

What started as an opportunity for women in offshore sailing to show that gender doesn’t hold you back, very quickly changed into something far larger than the race. People were challenged to view women differently.

In one of the few sports where women are able to compete directly against men on a level playing field, where strength and experience differed training, development, teamwork and persistence got results.

Inspiring people around the world to take that step socially, emotionally and professionally through empowering women and now The Magenta Project.
