In this photograph supplied by Volvo Ocean Race, PUMA Ocean Racing powered by BERG skipper Ken Read from the USA, (center), helps his crew deal with a broken mast on the first leg of the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12, which began 17 days ago from Alicante, Spain. The rig onboard PUMA's Mar Mostro failed at around 15:00 UTC, Monday, Nov 21, 2011, in the southern Atlantic Ocean, about 2,150 nautical miles from Cape Town, South Africa. None of the crew were hurt and the team have retired from the first leg of the race and are heading towards Tristan da Cunha, less than 700 nautical miles away.
