FWD. “Salma Hayek will soon add another title to her résumé: godmother. The actress and mother of Valentina Paloma is slated to be Puma‘s godmother for the company’s new boat and its ocean racing team…Puma launched into the sailing category this year and commissioned Goetz Custom Boats to build the lifestyle brand’s new Volvo Open 70, which will compete in the upcoming Volvo Ocean Race 2008-2009.”
The Volvo Ocean Race starts in October and should finish up in June/July St. Petersburg. Pictured above is a shot of Puma training vessel, the Avanti. Check the stitching detail on that mast. Dont expect this one to race. We’re hearing that the new vessel looks completely different. As, Puma is launching a performance gear line and lifestyle line around the team to hit the market in May.
