LORIENT, France (AP) -- Franck Cammas sailed into his home port, winning the eighth leg Volvo Ocean Race of Friday and edging closer to becoming only the second Frenchman to win the eight-month sailing marathon.

Camper (Spain/New Zealand) edged out American boat Puma for second place in the 1,940-nautical mile stage.

The Groupama boat can still be caught, but a top-three finish in the final stage between Lorient, France, and Galway, Ireland, will confirm Cammas' crew as winners on July 7.

Cammas insists Groupama's first-place finish is not guaranteed despite a 23-point advantage over Ken Read's Puma.

Camper is another five points adrift.
