How Could I Miss This?

Be ye warned! There’s a pirate ship headed for the high seas. When the Volvo Ocean Race starts Nov. 12 from Vigo, Spain, the sloop with the skull and crossed cutlasses on the sails will stand out from the rest of the fleet. The Black Pearl.

Although this Black Pearl won’t slip mysteriously out of fog banks, and Johnny Depp won’t be at the wheel as Capt. Jack Sparrow, The Walt Disney Co. has found a high-tech, floating billboard to promote "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest," the first of two sequels to its surprise 2003 blockbuster, "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl."

Disney is backing the only U.S. entry in the 31,250-mile, nine-leg, around-the-world race that attracts only the hardiest of scabrous dogs, who must dodge icebergs in the Southern Ocean and navigate the Doldrums and even the Bermuda Triangle.


Norrington: No additional shot nor powder, a compass that doesn’t point north,
[looks at Jack’s sword]
Norrington: and I half expected it to be made of wood. You are without a doubt the worst pirate I’ve ever heard of.
Jack Sparrow: But you have heard of me.

    Navigate the Doldrums? You mean they have to listen to a Howard Dean speech?
