Unique Opportunity: Extreme Sailing with Legend Ken Read

Il Mostro, PUMA's 2008-09 entry
If you're into extreme sailing, you know the Volvo Ocean Race is the pinnacle for adventurous seafarers. Here’s a priceless opportunity to spend time with a legend as he gets ready to circumnavigate the globe in the race.

Rhode Islander Ken Read, America's Cup sailor and winner of more than 40 yachting championships, invites you and a guest for a day on Rhode Island Sound, aboard the new Rhode Island-built boat he and the PUMA sailing team will take on the round-the-world Volvo Ocean Race in July. It's a real Rhode Island trifecta!

Captain Read and the PUMA team are serious contenders for the title in the next Volvo Ocean Race. They came in second last time (2008-09), but intend to move up aboard PUMA’s new craft, the Mar Mostro, built at New England Boatworks in Melville (Portsmouth).

This training day for the winner and a guest is estimated to last three hours and will be on a mutually-agreeable date before July third. The value of this once-in-a-lifetime experience is estimated at $3,000.00.
