ALICANTE, Spain (AP) American boat Team Alvimedica took the lead in the Volvo Ocean Race fifth leg early Sunday as the six-strong fleet continued to endure a helter-skelter ride toward Cape Horn in the Southern Ocean.

The boats managed to avoid huge icebergs on the route so far and three of them crashed to their sides mid-week before returning to vertical as winds reached 75 kilometers per hour (44mph) and waves approached 30 feet.

The fleet is expected to round Cape Horn - one of the key landmarks of the nine-month marathon offshore event - on Monday and bragging rights, but no points, go to the boat that leads at that point.
