Yealands Family Wines (31) is close behind, exiting Lake Wakatipu at day break, with Swordfox (17) in third place.

Amongst the Pursuits,Virbac Animal Health (74) has a massive lead on the Stage 8 the mountain, feeling fresh after a three hour sleep at Glenorchy.

Best Foot Forward (83) has a strong hold on second place, while Squashed Bananas (84) has taken its newly acclaimed spot of third place, overtaking Team Silky (79).

The lead teams in both competitions have managed a refreshing sleep overnight, mainly around the end of the kayak at TA6.
