Team New Zealand's entry, Camper, has made a strong start to Leg eight of the Volvo Ocean Race from Lisbon to Lorient, sitting in second place as the fleet heads out to sea after completing the short inshore course.

Puma lead the fleet out towards the Atlantic on the penultimate leg of the race.

Groupama remain at the top of the overall race leaderboard but they hold just an eight-point buffer over second-placed Team Telefónica, with Camper fourth.
