RI-Built Mar Mostro Takes Second Leg in Ocean Race
May 10, 2012
EastBayRI.com: Portsmouth [Rhode Island]-built Mar Mostro (Team Puma) crossed the Miami finish line first this afternoon (May 9), holding off a hard-charging Camper and taking its second straight Volvo Ocean Race leg.
Skipper Ken Read (Seekonk native and grad of the Barrington Yacht Club youth sailing program and Providence Country Day) held the lead from start to finish in the 4,131 mile Leg 6 from Itajai, Brazil, to Miami. Still, as the 2 lead boats maneuvered around the Bahamas, that lead dwindled at times to just under a mile.
