Camper remains in fourth place on second leg of Volvo Ocean race

Team New Zealand's entry Camper, remains in fourth place on the second leg of the Volvo Ocean race from Cape Town to Abu Dhabi.

Camper is 46 nautical miles behind the leg leader Abu Dhabi.

All six boats have made it through a notorious danger zone skirting the tip of Africa, a course that took them into treacherous currents and big waves.

Because of the danger of pirates operating out of Somalia, the boats are sailing to an unannounced destination, where they'll be loaded onto a transporter ship and will cover the rest of the leg on a ship, before being dropped just short of Abu Dhabi, for a final sprint to the finish.
