Three yachts in round-the-world Volvo Ocean Race damaged in storm

Three yachts in the round-the-world Volvo Ocean Race suffered storm damage during the first day at sea and two were making for port on Sunday.

Pirates of the Caribbean and movistar were both expected to try and repair damage in port _ movistar in Cadiz on the southwestern tip of Spain and Pirates of the Caribbean most likely in Lisbon, Portugal _ a spokeswoman for the race said.

Premier Challenge of Australia also suffered storm damage and had reduced speed but could yet be able to make running repairs.

The damaged yachts were about 160 nautical miles out at sea at 17.30 (16.30 GMT) and would take about 10 hours to make it to port.

ABN AMRO TWO was provisionally in the lead, AP reported. V.A.
