    While their new boat is being build, the PUMA crew is spending a good part of their training on team building.  After all, these 10 sailors will to be spending A LOT of time together between now and July 2012 when the Volvo Ocean Race finishes in Galway, Ireland.  PUMA's next team building exercise will be sailing onboard Jim Clark's Hanuman in the BVI Super Yacht Regatta.  Unlike a Volvo Open 70, Hanuman is a 137' aluminum J-Class replica, a replica of Endeavor II built in 1937.
