CAMPER skipper Chris Nicholson nursed his boat through heinous sea conditions overnight into Table Bay to clinch second place in Cape Town, South Africa, on Sunday after 21 days at sea.

CAMPER with Emirates Team New Zealand, throttled back overnight in winds gusting 35 knots and mountainous seas, but once daylight broke, they were up to speed and screamed across the finish to take 25 points to add to their four points earned for a third-place finish in the Iberdrola In-Port Race in Alicante, Spain, on October 29.

They are now in second place overall on the Volvo Ocean Race leaderboard with 29 points - two behind Team TELEFONICA who finished first on Saturday evening.
