Leap of faith for True Blood star Ryan Kwanten at the Volvo Ocean Race leg 7 Start in Newport, R.I.
The 38-year-old Austrlian heart-throb actor was on board the Emirati boat for a competitive circuit of Narragansett Bay before launching a spectacular pre-planned leap into the waters to be picked up by a dinghy.
Abu Dhabi and the five other boats in the offshore marathon racevs fleet will now sail the 2,800 nautical miles to Lisbon for Leg 7. The trip will take them between eight and 10 days.
