4:25 pm on 17 March 2012

Team New Zealand's yacht Camper has won the Volvo Ocean Race's in-port race in Auckland.

Camper tacked right to the shoreline off the start and led all the way home on the 60-minute course to win by 54 seconds from Puma, with Groupama third.

It's Camper's first in-port race win but the New Zealand boat's still third overall ahead of the tricky Southern Ocean leg starting tomorrow.

Telefonica leads the overall standings after four legs, with Groupama second.
