Thursday, March 20, 2014

PHILADELPHIA – SCA, maker of Tena incontinence products, has added American sailor Sara Hastreiter to Team SCA, the only all-female crew to compete in the 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race. Hastreiter has sailed more than 40,000 nautical miles and competed in numerous races. Team SCA has been trialing candidates and, with only seven months left until the start of the race in October, has honed the final crew to 12. The team is based in Puerto Calero, Lanzarote, and is due to complete two practice transatlantic sails in May, which will include a stop in Newport, R.I. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to have Sara join the team and represent SCA and our brands in the U.S., Tena and Tork,” stated Don Lewis, president of SCA, in a release.
