Telefónica overhauls Camper in close Volvo stage

4:36 pm on 28 April 2012

Telefónica has overtaken Team New Zealand's entry in the Volvo Ocean Race, moving up into second place on leg six to Miami behind race leaders Puma.

Camper is now 14.4 nautical miles behind Puma and almost four behind Telefónica, which is 10.6 miles off Puma as the boats struggle in light air.

The light conditions are set to continue as the fleet heads for the north eastern tip of Brazil so the consolidation of the fleet is likely to continue.
