She Can Captain My Vessel


Leg Seven (to Galway, Ireland) of the Volvo Ocean Race began over the weekend; the 70.5 foot long, 11 man crewed tall ships took back to the sea from Boston Harbor for the next segment of the 37,000 nautical mile race due to end in St. Petersburg in June. Among the teeming crowds on hand to support the ships were French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault and his new wife, Salma Hayek. Aboard the Il Mostro, the representative of the Puma Ocean Racing Team in the race, Salma and her hubby took a spin at the wheel, and hopefully will bring the vessel some good luck.

“Salma christened Il Mostro in Boston Harbor a year ago to the day,” skipper Ken Read said, “It’s great to have our boat’s godmother with us as we leave Boston and I hope she’ll bring us good luck in this leg.”

If you want to see some more photos of these totally awesome ships, check out this excellent hi-res gallery here.
