Scuttlebut Podcast: Ken Read

(March 30, 2007) Ken Read and the Puma Racing Team announced today that they are officially the third campaign that will participate in the 2008-2009 Volvo Ocean Race. Our audio podcast with Ken discusses how the relationship got started with Puma, what is the current status of their program, who are some of the team members, and what the team will initially be sailing on to train. The conversation also drifts to Ken's career and the people that have helped him earn this opportunity, and the conversations he had with his daughter while determining whether to take on this challenge. This is 10:53 minutes of very insightful information on this very new and exciting effort that will be based in the US.
