BOSTON — It took five whacks of a Taittingers bottle, and help from a crew member, but Salma Hayek eventually christened Puma's "Il Mostro" yacht here, part of the sport lifestyle company's high-profile gambit to enter sailing.
Puma will enter the boat in the Volvo Ocean Race, a 37,000 nautical mile, globe-spanning contest that takes 10 months. The race — and the better-known America's Cup, a darling of luxury marketers — are sailing's major events.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
