PUMA VIDEO highlights – from heartache to champions

PUMA Ocean Racing powered by BERG suffered the heartbreak of a dismasting on Leg 1 yet they recovered to force their way back into the reckoning and ended up In-Port Race Series champions.

Ken Read’s team found themselves battling for the golf course record at the world’s most remote human settlement after a dismasting on leg 1 forced them to limp in to Tristan da Cunha.

It was a devastating blow, yet the team showed remarkable character to get back into the race with back-to-back offshore leg victories and give the eventual winners a bit of a fright.

Here a recap of what was an extraordinary campaign from Read’s time, one documented memorably by MCM Amory Ross.
