Hollywood goes to sea

The Walt Disney Company are having a racing yacht built at the Green Marine facility in Lymington, Hampshire, in time to start the Volvo round-the-world race from Galicia, north-west Spain, in November.

The boat, The Black Pearl, will also be used as a floating billboard to promote a sequel to the feature film, Pirates of the Caribbean.

Johnny Depp, who will star in the film, actually enjoys sailing in real life.
