Ken Read to sail Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12

Ken Read, who famously introduced the PUMA lifestyle as skipper of their entry during the 2008-9 VOR, will be back again with a new program. Said Read, “While I enjoyed the PUMA gig, and the whole tiger thing on the sails was pretty trippy, I needed to get closer to my roots.” Look for Read to skipper CHUCK TAYLOR for Team Converse. “My relationship with Chuckies goes back to the ’85 SORC when our team gear consisted of a pile jacket and a pair of red high tops. We felt like kings back then, and I wanted that vibe again.”

April Fools!
