NEW Due to popular request, we have now also have a listing of the OBR photos. These are published by the OBRs with some basic descriptions (unlike the videos) though the 4,545 we have indexed to date only go as far back as the start of Leg 2. New content from Leg 3 will be automagically added ;)

[No description yet...][No description yet...][No description yet...][No description yet...]Pretty sunrise drone shot. Martin, on the helm, talks about gybing into the Luzon Strait. Brunel should be somewhere around here. Brian [Johnson] and Dee look at the chart. Dee describes how Brunel is super close to them; just off their quarter. Drone shot. Brian talks about the tricky wind patterns ahead of them and the positions of the boats around them. Dee laughs about Brunel being right there, and how she's tired.Drone shots of vestas. Mark and SiFi looking at the chart at the nav station, talking about strategy vis-a-vis the competitors. SiFi explaisn that they just got a sched, and are working out where to go through the Phillippines. Based on a big righthand shift they're going to go south. Looks like it will help them with Dongfeng. Shot of the sails on deck. Gybe at night from the cabin, looing at the cockpit. Closeup of chart showing their course zigzagging though islands. Red-light shots of stacking on deck. Another night gybe. Mark, on the helm, talks about how they're gybing through the Straits of Luzon and have made a good gain on Dongfeng.Very high drone shot. Jules, on the stern, talks about how they're in stealth mode. Most of those on the boat have done 35 out of the last 40 days at sea. Drone shot flying in toward and then past the boat.Sunrise shot of the stern. Carolijn on the stern. Franck, on the stern, explains where the competitors are. Having to deal with the wind shadow of Taiwan. And will have to deal with the finish into Hong Kong. Kevin on the helm with Horace trimming and Carolijn on the pedestal. She's looking forward to arriving in Hong Kong and seeing her son Kyle. And seeing the rest of the Dongfeng family again. She says a phrase in Cantonese, with a small correction from Horace. Horace talks about how his sailing dreams started in Hong Kong. Met the person who gave him the chance to learn professional sailing, and gave him a chance to join the biggest race in the world. And he thinks his famiily will be there. Will fight until the end. Daryl says he's looking forward to seeing his family in Hong Kong. Jack is looking forward to seeing the team, and his girlfriend. It's a cool place he hasn't been to.Slomo washing machine in the cockpit. Drone shot of TTToP sailing fast. Surfing shots from the drone. Francesca in the cabin: "We need to keep pushing." Bernardo, crouching in the pit, explains that they did well in the last sched, but they're to leeward, so their distance-to-finish hasn't gained as much. But they think the wind will favor them. In the hatch, Francesca talks about how good things are: Sun. "Elodie is driving so we are going fast. The sky is so nice. We have more than 20 knots. It's perfect." Shot of Elodie on the helm. Drone shots of them sailing fast. Bernardo: "We have to push... and see what the outcome of the leg is." Were unlucky crossing the equator with a few clouds. Wake shot.Drone shots of Brunel sailing fast on starboard gybe, including washing-machine shots from the drone, with Yann on the stern. Drone recovery, I think by Bouwe, with Yann in the background at the controls. Sally, on the stern, says it's blowing 20-23 knots. "Trying to get to Hong Kong." Bouwe trimming on the stern. Washing-machine shots of Jens in the cockpit. Abby and Sally sharing some kind of brightly colored candy from a ziploc bag. Below, Bouwe explains that yesterday they made a very good move breaking away from a cloud formation, and made good gains. Hopes they keep the breeze and make even more gains. Very nice sailing conditions right now; 48 hours from the finish. Strategy of how to get around the Phillippines is important.Distant drone shot of AkzoNobel. Drone shot of the cockpit from overhead. Shot of the crew in the cockpit. Simeon, below, sys they're 3 days from Hong Kong, a little less breeze than they wanted. A couple of gybes in the last 48 hours to seek some more pressure to the south, which was unfortunate because they'd committed to the north earlier. Trying to defend against MAPFRE. Drone flyby of an interesting-looking motor vessel, painted white and about 100' long; numbers "BJ4979" painted on the side. It's a tuna longliner; see https://www.wcpfc.int/node/16813. As the drone passes it we see AkzoNobel in the background. In the cockpit, Brad and Nicolai talk. Brad: "What's your favorite movie quote?" Nicolai: "Favorite movie quote?" He thinks. Brad: "I think I know what it is... Yours would be: 'I'm not a smart man. But I know what love is." [Forrest Gump.] Nicolai: "That's a good one." Another drone shot of the fishing boat, showing the crew working in the area forward of the cabin. Brad: "'Are you not entertained?'" [Gladiator.]Vestas gybes from starboard to port.

Spreader cam view at night as they gybe from port to starboard. Mark and SiFi look at other boats on AIS (I think). Another gybe, this one during the early morning light, from starboard to port.
