Just two days ago, Chris Nicholson’s CAMPER with Emirates Team New Zealand crew were more than 80 miles behind the leaders, struggling to get back into the race.

But clever tactics from Nicholson and navigator Will Oxley saw CAMPER climb steadily through the rankings and by 1300 UTC they had picked off Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing, the final boat standing between them and the number one spot.

It was a huge boost for the crew, who are still seeking their first offshore leg win, however with more than 2,000 nautical miles still to sail and a race course littered with potential pitfalls, the leg is far from decided.

“Will’s and Nico’s long-labored and meticulously conjured up plan to head north and split from the fleet paid big dividends and all of a sudden we have managed to leap frog a fair chunk of the fleet,” CAMPER media crew member Hamish Hooper said.

“It’s a nice feeling going from one wrong extreme to the right one, but by no means anything to get too carried away with other than a quiet grin and momentary warm sense of satisfaction for the guys who have all been toiling away quietly and focused, sailing the boat to its optimum from a point two days ago where a lot of other teams might have just given up.”

“There’s a lot of variable weather going on in this leg and not all of it is panning out for some people,” Nicholson added. “It all makes for a very unstable leaderboard.”

The team have been busy training in Auckland. We are enjoying the blue skies and sunny days. Not long till we are off to the UK. Final days of preparation are under way……

Tropical Storm lottery for the fleet

With conflicting weather data and the likelihood of Tropical Storm Alberto sweeping across the fleet, the Global Ocean Race (GOR) Class40s are relying on experience, instinct, skill and an element of luck as they head north-east away from Cape Hatteras and the coast of the USA.

Weather files indicate a windless corridor 140 miles wide along the coast and the four boats have been clipping the offshore edge of this zone with the 34-mile lead held by Marco Nannini and Sergio Frattaruolo decreasing rapidly as the Italian-Slovak duo split from the fleet heading east with Financial Crisis while Conrad Colman and Scott Cavanough in second place with Cessna Citation maintained a more northerly course, polling the highest speeds in the fleet, trailing Financial Crisis by 13 miles at 15:00 GMT on Tuesday, but separated by over 100 miles on the water as they scatter into the North Atlantic.

In third and fourth place, the South African and Dutch Class40s are separated by just eight miles and have been fighting against unreadable weather. On Sec. Hayai  in fourth, the Budels have found the conditions frustrating: “Today was very calm and three times we were caught in a windless zone!” reported Frans Budel late on Monday night. “Very irritating if you are in a race, but we saw on the tracker that everyone was slowing down!”

Naked surfer rides waves in the Sunshine Coast

Surfers are known for their love and passion for Mother Nature. Ocean, sand, salt and waves are always in contact with the human body and many riders think life is better in boardshorts.

Marama Kake, a surfer from New Zealand, has been taking the relationship with the elements too seriously. She’s has been attracting the curious eyes of beachgoers because she likes to go surfing completely naked.

Yes, Kake takes her surfboard to the sand and hits the waves as she came to this world. No bikini, just a smile and stoke. The Sunshine Coast local boardriders thought it was strange, but now they’re used to “it”.

CAMPER made a drastic split from the fleet on Wednesday in an attempt to jump back up the Leg 7 leaderboard, heading north in search of better breeze.

“The routing is showing two quite dramatically different solutions right now. That’s the dilemma” – Will Oxley, CAMPER

With Telefónica breathing down the neck of frontrunners Groupama following an exceptional 24 hours that saw them knock 25 nautical miles off their French rival’s advantage, CAMPER with Emirates Team New Zealand chose to cash in their position to the south of the fleet and dodge an area of light winds ahead that threatened to ensnare them.

The tactic, which relegates them to sixth in the rankings, could see them adopt a more traditional route high into the North Atlantic to avoid the Azores High, a massive high pressure system sitting in the middle of the ocean.

After overhauling PUMA Ocean Racing powered by BERG, Iker Martínez’s Telefónica snuck up on Groupama, leaders of the 3,590-nm leg to Lisbon since its start on May 20, and at 1600 UTC just 3.2 nm split the two.

“We are doing pretty fast angles and speeds so right now it is all good,” said Martínez, who led his team to victory in the first three offshore legs. “We are sailing very well and we are comfortable in these conditions.”

The teams had hoped for a direct route to Lisbon, away from the more traditional route high into the North Atlantic to dodge the Azores High, a huge high pressure system that sits in the centre of the ocean.

But unstable weather conditions ahead could see the teams cut their losses and head north on a more customary route as far north as Canada.

Martínez said the decisions made in the next 36 hours could prove vital to long-term success as they approach light winds.

Yann Riou/Groupama Sailing Team/Volvo Ocean Race

Groupama and Telefónica have been trading first place overnight after the overall race leaders finally reduced the French team’s lead to zero late yesterday evening.

The scrap for first place could not have been tighter with Telefónica finally gaining the upper hand at the 2200 UTC position report last night, but by only 0.1 nautical miles (nm).

Three hours later at 0100 the pair were tied in an exact dead heat with both teams showing zero miles to the lead despite being separated laterally by 30 nm or more.

Meanwhile, 20 nm back, the competition in the chasing pack is equally tight as PUMA defend the final podium spot from Abu Dhabi, CAMPER and Sanya — with all four separated by just 23 nm.

However, by 0400 UTC this morning Groupama had regained the upper hand and had eked out into a two and a half nautical mile lead on Telefónica.

By 0700 UTC Telefónica had pulled back to within a fraction over one nautical mile of Groupama, while PUMA had dropped three nautical miles furhter from the lead and just over one nautical mile ahead of Abu Dhabi.

CAMPER and Sanya reamined in fifth and sixth, 36 nm and 45 nm off the lead respectively.


The curse of the dreaded ‘sched’ struck CAMPER with full force yesterday as they plummeted from second to fifth after sailing too close to the eye of Tropical Storm Alberto.

“Yesterday we had probably one of the worst scheds of the whole race so far, dropping close to 25 miles on the other boats” – CAMPER skipper Chris Nicholson

Chris Nicholson’s crew were caught out when the storm moved east unannounced and smothered the fleet, leaving CAMPER with Emirates New Zealand powerless as they lost vital miles to their rivals over a series of scheds, boat slang for position reports.

“Unfortunately, yesterday we had probably one of the worst scheds of the whole race so far, dropping close to 25 miles on the other boats,” Nicholson said.

Hamish Hooper, CAMPER’s media crew member, described his team as a “canary in the coal mine” as they unwillingly sacrificed their strong position, caught in light winds.

“As we floundered on light wind from all directions, PUMA and Telefónica saw our predicament and managed to keep high and avoid the same pitfall as we ended up in,” Hooper said.

“Abu Dhabi also managed to sail past in what can only be described as a disastrous few hours in the afternoon. Our hope is that it all goes in swings and roundabouts, so our chance to get back in front of them will come. This is stressful sailing.”

Counting their blessings were PUMA
