While the daily boatfeed videos coming from the Volvo Ocean Race fleet typically get progressively duller over the course of a leg, perhaps due to the editor/MCMs loss of mental connection to their audience after a while at sea. So we’re especially appreciative of the work that Puma AG’s in-house editing team is doing to keep our interest in the drama itself going. The racing is certainly good, but even on their best days, the Volvo media crews don’t quite have the slickness or edge that Puma’s “PUMACast” does. The organization of the 8 PUMAcast episodes leaves something to be desired, but you can check them all out by scrolling though the PUMA Ocean Racing video page here or download them on iTunes here.
This one is Episode 8, and it’s an informative and entertaining slice of life for anyone interested in how a boat gets put together for a race like this.
