Gear failure forces Camper further off the lead

6:41 pm on 29 February 2012

Team New Zealand's Round the world race entry Camper has slipped further off the lead, on the fourth leg of the race to Auckland.

After finally picking up on the trade winds they suffered sail damage and had to carry out hasty repairs forcing them to slow down.

They're still in second place but are now 150 kilometres behind leader Groupama.
