Team New Zealand Camper has mixed emotions following its failure to snatch third on leg four of the Volvo Ocean Race.
Camper was fourth into Auckland, just 93 seconds behind overall race leaders Telefonica.
Helmsman Tony Rae says while it was gutting to lose by so little, it was good to show some fight.
Rae says they got so far behind Telefonica at one stage, so at least they did catch them and did not just let them sail away.
The last of the fleet has arrived, with Team Sanya coming in sixth.
Groupama was first in, late last night.
