Spain: Two yachts in round-the-world Volvo Ocean Race damaged in storm, heading for port

Two yachts in the round-the-world Volvo Ocean Race suffered storm damage during the first day at sea and 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.

"Pirates is taking in water and movistar has damage to its swinging, or canting, keel," race press officer Lizzie Green told The Associated Press by telephone.
