11:41 am on 24 April 2012

Team New Zealand's boat Camper has grabbed the lead early on the sixth leg of the Volvo Ocean race from Brazil to Miami.

Camper has snuck ahead because of their north-west course which has them just over a mile ahead of Abu Dhabi.

All five boats are just 17 miles apart.

Leg six is expected to take around 14 days to complete.
