Actress Gabrielle Union Takes on Mar Mostro, The PUMA Quad in Miami and Makes friends with Marmo

This past Saturday, actress Gabrielle Union ("Think Like a Man," "Good Deeds") joined PUMA in Miami for the only US stop of the Volvo Ocean Race. Coming to cheer on the hometown team and wish them well prior to the in-port race, Gabrielle was welcomed with open arms by PUMA Ocean Racing and received an extensive tour of the boat by young crew member, Rome Kirby. Really interested in the full sailing experience, Gabrielle went behind the helm, asked questions for each and every piece of the boat and even checked out the living conditions under the deck. Gabrielle was impressed but admittedly knew that the sailing life on Mar Mostro wouldn't be the best fit for her lifestyle, or her beauty regimens! But she had no fear in climbing into one of the bunk beds to see what it really was like for the team.

Post tour, Gabrielle spent time at The PUMA Quad and met with PUMA's ambassador, Marmo, and lead a reading to kids from the storybook "Marmo Saves Our Seas."
