Frederico Pinheiro de Melo / Turn The Tide On Plastic

gender Male
Lucas, below: It's about setting goals, and you often have to readjust depending on where you are. To keep the morale up you set goals that you think you can achieve, and you keep chipping away at some bigger goals. We've set targest for each leg, and that's how you get better. Peel on deck. Frederico: Big challenge to manage your emotions while racing so many days in a row, so intensive. So many highs and lows. The very good sailors in this sport keep themselves stable. I struggle a lot; sometimes frustrated when things not going well. Shots of Frederico looking frustrated. Frederico: So yeah, something I've been working on. But the team always has the spirit to look forward, so that helps. Always improving, having fun. Francesca smiles in magic-hour light. Francesca: I'm a really competititve sailor. Short races, Olympic sailing, always to win. This race was different; knew from the beginning we had less experience. At the same time we have ability to sail fast, and have a good finish. Now is the time to show what we've learned and push as much as possible. Liz: Only reason we do this race is because we want to win... We're not going to win; we know that now. We can only do our best, nad we're doing our best against the best. Bianca: I feel really proud, proud of myself, and of our team. We've just sailed around the world in the Volvo Ocean Race. That's not something everybody does. We've proved that a mixed team can compete in this race at a high level. So yeah, I'm super proud.Bianca (I think?) in the cockpit talks about how they're holding onto 3rd place. Liz, on the helm, talks about going to the J0, explaining how they need to run another inboard sheet. "So if we need to furl the J2, let's get the sheet off it... this blue lead here..." I love how she's helming and explaining the maneuver at the same time. Washing machine shot. Slomo with crew at the mast.They're putting in a reef. Frederico comes back and talks to Liz about the maneuver.Liz on the helm. Vestas 100 yards ahead of their bow. Bleddyn explains that they're all heading out to cross the high pressure ridge. Close sailing. Frederico talking with Brian. Frederico explains the strategic issues of getting across the ridge. Brian: It's all very well beating Scallywag, but it doesn't accomplish what we want. Bianca talks about them wanting to put another boat between them [so they can pass them to get out of last place in the overall standings]. Brian talks about the upcoming rest of the leg. Frederico: I hope we can put all the learning from the last legs together and smash everybody. We have the potential. Gybe. Bleddyn: Pushing since the beginning of the race, but more since Hong Kong. Getting the podium finish would be great. It was super tight going around Fastnet Rock.Annalise points out the west Cork coastline. Apart from Brazil, this is the closest they've done to sailing along the coast of a country. Bianca: But what country is that? Annalise: Ireland! Fishing boats, land, islands. Vestas behind them. Frederico, forward: We passed Fastnet a few hours ago. He points out other boats. All very close, very nice, every puff makes a difference. Vestas passes them to weather with Fastnet Rock in the background. AkzoNobel a boatlength behind them. Brian: It's unexpected, but we are with all the other boats. We've been looking at them, judging what the wind is. I think we've managed to make some gains today. We're a lot closer to Dongfeng than we were a few hours ago. Getting the waves from the northerly breeze. That northerly is going to kick in sometime tonight. So a transition for that. Fascinating day so far, and more to come tonight.Drone shots. TTToP triple-heading on starboard in 18 knots. Weed floating into the cockpit. Nicolas and Dee at the nav station. Dee talks about the legs to and from Hong Kong, and then in the Southern Ocean: for three legs they had the potential to podium, and it hasn't happened. Everyone's nipping at our heels. In the back of my mind: We can't lose it again. High drone shot of them sailing through lines of sargasso weed. Slomo of Francesca wringing out her hair. She talks about trying (again) for a podium position. Slomo of Frederico taking off his foulies. "We deserve it if we get it... The best teams get the results they want because they work hard." Francesca talks about the opportunities in the last thousand miles. "We just need a little bit more lucky." Slomo of Liz on the helm. Liz: At the moment we're in a podium spot, and we're fighting like hell to keep that spot. Dee: 2,000 miles to go... the pressure's on. High drone shot.Sunrise drone shot. Francesca: We're still leading, so this is good. Last sched was not the best one. We can see Vestas (gestures behind her). My parents had a cruising boat, 30-foot cruising boat. I was born in January, and in February I was already on the boat. Slomo of Francesca adjusting her cap. "They had this system of bungee that made a little bed for me." Shot of her left forearm tattoos of elephans. Francesca on the helm in slomo. Learned how to manage herself in the hard moments. Had some hard moments in the Southern Ocean. Was more like mentally tough than physically. Push myself, tomorrow will be another day, it will be better. Instruments on the mast. Dee by the shrouds. Dee: To see Frankie grow from the start of this project to now has been incredible. Came in with no offshore experience; had an Olympic background. But she does make you laugh, because sometimes she says yeah, yeah, yeah. But you realize she didn't understand any of it. [We see everyone in the crew saying hello in their native dialect.] Francesca tells a story of Frederico rescuing a flying fish that hit the board. Francesca: An amazing experience to sail around in the environment I love, with the group of friends. Worst thing: the freeze-dried. The food is not really nice at times. Sunset drone shot.Drone shot with sunset behind the boat. Crew sailing in rougher conditions. Frederico: Finally sailing on starboard, close reaching, after three days upwind. Did very well. We're the eastern boat. We think it will pay off, but is quite risky. But we are confident in our navigator. We see out the cabin as Dee comes out and relays the sched. Dee explains: We were the fastest boat in the sched. We've got more breeze, which is why we positioned ourselves furthest east. Just need to keep it up and stay focused. Annalise: A lot of upwind, which is slow. Prefer to do 20 knots... but it makes it easier when the position report comes in and we're doing well. Drone shot. Frederico's hand on a winch. Frederico below: The race is quite brutal.... It's just about self management. To take care of your emotions when you are so tired. It's hard, but you ahve to learn how to cooperate with everyone around... It's hard. I think I've grown to be a different man in all the legs so far. When we started very fresh, I never had experience offshore. Now we can sail the boat close to the other teams. I think everybody step up, and we're a really strong team now. Drone shot with rain in the distance.Slomo parade. Dockout. Liz on the helm waving at the shore. Frederico talks about the stopover and the next leg from the foredeck as they motor out. Francesca calls "four minutes" in the cockpit. Start with other boats ahead. Dee driving after the start. First mark rounding; good action on board. Dee: "Nice guys; nice." Lowering the J1. Sailing downwind under A3. Frederico calls for the furl approaching the leward mark. He calls to the boat behind them, "No water! No water!" Henry talks about leaving and heading north for Newport. Did a good in-port section. MAPFRE just ahead. Coming into the first light stuff they've had for an opening of a leg. High drone shot of competitors.Lucas, on deck in light conditions before sunrise: Because we're enjoying ourselves so much out here, and are so in touch with nature, we thought we'd come up with some romantic sea poems. Frederico on the helm: Oh wind oh wind. Where are you wind? Oh wind. We used to be friends... Come back my wind. Don't be shy my wind. I love you my wind. (people laugh in the background). Sunrise. Liz: Oh winch oh winch I wish you would turn. Lucas: 130 miles to the finish. Liz goes aloft, walking lazily up the side of the mast.Dee, in sunrise: It's Easter Sunday. And if we're good boys and girls we'll get Easter Eggs. But what we really want is a working rig on starboard. Lucas: New rules of the boat: Can't sail on starboard. Only on port. Sort of like a one-legged duck. (he quacks) Liz: we can't sail with the full main, cant' sail with any masthead sails, can't slam into any waves, can't say the f-bomb on deck because someone might think we've just broken the mast. Bleddyn: [Something about poo bags. Probably just as well I can't understand.] Liz explains she'll go up with a spanner and try to get the spreader back in while someone on deck leans on the stay to try to pop it back. "Someone biggish." They look at Frederico. "It's not going to break?" They laugh. Liz goes aloft. Gopro (garmin) footage. "Strops are on." She uses a grinder on deck to shave down the wrench. Bleddyn: We have a grand total of 1/4 turn. So about 40 steps to go. Frederico bounces on the stay. Dee and Brian talk by the wheel; Liz cheers from the mast. "Dee! It's done!" Dee: "Now that's an Easter chick if ever I saw one." Liz: This spanner is going into the Hall of Fame. Henry: 2018 years ago, Jesus rose from the dead. And we've just resurrected our mast. Liz, in the dark, talks about the screwing in. Below, Franscesca: "It's a miracle." Dee: "The race is back on." "1000 miles to go you guys." Gopro shot of liz signing the mast with a white pen: "01/04/2018 Rig = 0 // Liz = 1 !!!" Plus a tongue-sticking-out happy face.Dee looks out companionway at sunset; she cheers. Crew at the stern cheer back and raise their arms. Francesca (I think) on the foredeck with a camera takes video of herself with her life vest accidentally deployed, laughing. Crew in the cockpit (can't tell who under all the layers) mugging and waving at the camera. High drone shot of them sailing in relatively light winds (20?) with the FR0 and a reefed main with both J2 and J3 hoisted but furled. Drone shot of a gybe in those conditions! Dee, below: We think we've just done our final gybe in the Southern Ocean to get to Cape Horn. Francesca: Our last time in the Southern Ocean, finally we will get some warm weather. At the same time I'm looking forward for Cape Horn in daylight... Something I've dreamed of my whole life, and it's almost come true. Liz, on the stern: It's a bit sad, because it's always amazing sailing down here. But it's been cold, and everyone's looking forward to warming up. Not going to shoot myself in the foot; have 250 miles to go. But she's looking forward to the restart and the last part of the leg. Frederico: Still have to be very focused on the job. One more night to get through. Sam to Liz: Would you come back and do it again? Liz: "Of course I'd come back and do it again. Sign me up tomorrow... Even with one arm." Frederico: "Yeah, with some dry socks this time. For sure." Francesca: I don't know. Maybe I'd do it again. Right now I'd say no. Maybe after... Night vision shot from the stern cam of washing machine in the cockpit.Shifting sails to leeward for a tack. Crew working on the foredeck with a hovering helicopter ahead of them. Slomo of Frederico grinding with Brunel and a New Zealand headland in the background. Bianca, below, talks about sailing away from New Zealand. Awesome going into the Southern Ocean again, going around the Horn. Thanks Auckland for the support, spectators, especially her family and friends. Frederico (I think?) in his bunk. Liz, in her bunk, recaps that they've sailed upwind a couple hundred miles from Auckland to East Cape, tacking, peels. Not much sleep; a lot of stacking. Went pretty quick. More slomo with Brunel in the background. Liz: On the southern highway, straight to the ice gate for us. About 48 hours... Way too wired to go to sleep. (She mimes going to sleep.) Bianca spills up spilled rice in the galley. "I want my mum." I haven't exactly found my sea legs yet. Lucas: It's not as bad as the time I spilled shit everywhere. That was a lot worse. Bianca asks Sam, "Were you on that leg? It was a full explosion." Lucas: "Nah; he was on another boat. Getting _ridden_." Lucas, brushing his teeth, talks about lack of sleep: You think everything's funny. You think everything's shit, or you think everything's funny. Bianca: Just let me clean up my shit... in peace. Lucas: She hasn't got to the funny part yet. [They laugh.] They keep talking (with Liz commenting in the background) as we see a drone shot circling TTToP sailing upwind under J0/J3. [Favoriting mostly for Sam's cool slice-of-life on board. Really feels like being part of the crew.]Henry, on the weather rail, talks about the first few hours of the race. He sounds a little seasick. Aft of Sam, Frederico shakes the water off his head with the sunset behind him, talks about how nervous he was this morning. So dangerous, so many obstacles, low pressure, Cape Horn. Now he's more relaxed; they've started. But it's pretty epic. Liz, on the helm: If you want to do the VOR, this is the leg you think of first. Every offshore sailor's dream. Brian: He's done two legs with this crew, and he's seen how much they've approved. They're not newbies down there. Their learning curve has gone up really high. Have enough experience and common sense now to deal with the south. Talks about easing into it; 25 knots upwind now, and when they get to the Southern Ocean won't be blowing dogs off chains straightaway.Henry, on the weather rail, talks about the first few hours of the race.

Dee on the helm. Rounding the weather mark behind Brunel. Lucas talks about being right in the middle of it; good intensity. Henry, on the aft pedestal, talks about the crowd. When they arrived it was 2 a.m. and they thought they had a lot of boats out, but Sunday afternoon is a different level. Nice start; they're in good shape. Time to head south. They love their yachting in New Zealand. Frederico talks about the spectator fleet. Dee; What a send off. Auckland Harbor delivered... Loving it."Twenty seconds" (unitl the start).

Loving it.Frederico, trimming, explains that they just gybed because they got an unexpected header, so they're now on course but on port insted of starboard. Liz steers. Drone shot with rain in the distance. Dee: "Let's make this cloud our friend and stays with it." Dee discusses strategy and nearby boats. "We're in really light airs and just need a bit more oomph, really."High-speed sailing on starboard gybe. Washing machine; slomo of Frederico shaking water out of his hair, Bleddyn coiling. Liz on the helm. Whooping and laughing.Annalise stands on the bow with a glassy sea and clouds around her. Shot of raincloud behind them. Frederico points to port. "We have a twister. It's somehing new for me as well. And this one is connecting to the water already. It's not as big as the other one we have, but it might have a lot of breeze... Wait and see." Shot of the funnel cloud. Rain falling; crew rushes into the cockpit to shower. "Give us some soap!" Francesca, on the helm: "Main on. Someone!" Dee interrupts washing her hair to grind. Slomo of Martin grinding, grinning at Dee. Shots of dolphins under the bow. Dee, sitting in the forward hatch, points out where the different boats are. "It's the first time we've been clear north of everyone."Liz, in her bunk, playfully pushes against the bottom of the bunk above her. "Just relax to beat the heat." Francesca raises her left arm to spray something (deoderant?) on her armpit while grinning at the camera, then lowers her arm to spray the right arm, revealing her completely badass upper-arm tattoo. Maybe it's a lighthouse? Also has elephants on her left forearm, and something else (a floral pattern? waves?) on her right bicep. In his bunk, shirtless, Bernardo talks about staying cool "with this beautiful fan". Liz sprays him with a spray bottle; he laughs. She sprays Brian [Johnson] at the galley. Shot of someone (Annalise?) and Francesca splayed out in the bow, sleeping. Liz, in her bunk: "I just like helping other people out." She talks about how to deal with the heat in her bunk. Shots of Annalise on the foredeck, stacking in the bow. Francesca taking her hands off the wheel. Martin, sitting to leeward, talks about how they're closing up with the leaders. Drone shot from astern. Annalise in the bow stacks forward and talks about closing on the leaders. Slomo shot of Frederico on the helm.Spreader cam view of Liz working the clew. Shot looking forward at outrigger lashed to the lifelines next to the stack. Liz, on the helm: "Spend long enough next to the good guys and it's bound to rub off." They're up at the front of the fleet. "We might have been called the rookies, but we've got a lot of skill and talent on board." Bleddyn takes the helm from Liz: "Nice to see that we're back in the game." Frederico on the pedestal talks about their improvement. Annalise: "I think we're getting better at figuring out modes. That's what the other teams have on us; they've just got so much experience." Slomo closeup of Bleddyn's hands on the wheel.Dee is at the nav station; Brian [Thompson] sits behind her. Dee talks about how she's lucky because she's sailed with Brian a lot, so they know how each other works. "And after all he is pretty much the fastest man on water, holds more speed records than anyone knows existed, so why wouldn't I have him on my boat with me?" Brian [Carlin] asks various crewmembers if they know how many speed records Brian [Thompson] has set. Elodie guesses 6. Liz, sleepy in her bunk: "I have no idea." Bernardo just wiggles his eyebrows in closeup. Frederico guesses 10. Bleddyn guesses 5. Martin, on the helm: 20. Annalise: "22. Actually I'm just making that up off the top of my head. But I know he has at least one with my mom and dad." Below, Brian answers: "I've set about 45 records, and I hold about 15." Bleddyn, on deck: "I feel terrible. Oh god. I won't be able to look him with a straight face. I hope he's asleep now, didn't hear all that." Martin: "He's gonna see the video, mate." Bleddyn: "He will, yeah."Crash cam, stern cam. We see TTToP surfing down a big wave on port gybe. They get too low, bury the bow, pop the rudders out, and the boat gybes accidentally to starboard. They immediately grind in the main (good; helped to keep the rig in), get the keel across (presumably), then tack around onto port again. Liz, below, explains what happened. Bleddyn describes what happened. Frederico says that was his first time doing that in a Volvo 65 (which gets a laugh). He describes what it was like down below. Dee says it was inevitable, probably, but things got sorted out. "A few wide eyes."Drone shots of TTToP sailing under MH0 and J3 in light winds. GoPro shot of Liz going to the masthead. At the masthead she holds Wisdom and voices him: "Hi everybody! Volvo... Ocean.. Race... 'm going flying, watch me! They're fixing a sail down there. Look, ther'es another bird. Hi! I'm going back in Liz's pocket now. It's scary up here." Back on deck, Wisdom talks about wanting to really fly. Dolphins under the bowsprit. Jérémie takes video of Liz taking a picture with her phone. On the foredeck, Bianca (?) works on repairing a sail. Martin and Frederico also repairing the sail. Frederico: "On my Finn boat it's just put some duct tape and that's it." Lucas paces in the cockpit. "Long way to Melbourne like this, I'll tell you that. Seven knots. We might be there by NEXT Christmas if we're lucky.... No matter how sloe we go, Christmas keeps getting closer." Nicolas talks about high pressure costing them access to the wind, could be 8 days to Melbourne.Liz is steering as TTToP sails on port gybe with full main in 15 knots of wind. Francesca trims the main. Bianca carries her gear to the stern where she gets dressed (maybe she was using it as a bathroom too?) Liz talks about how they're not THAT isolated, because they have the fleet around them. Also there are a lot of islands in this part of the Southern Ocean, so there is shipping and fishing boats. "It's the next part of the Southern Ocean where you feel really isolated." Frederico talks about isolation not crossing his mind much; too busy sailing the boat. In the companionway, Bleddyn brushes his teeth. Cabin shot of the crew on the stern, Elodie, trimming, calls "Main on." Wisdom tucked into the pit coaming. Below, Bleddyn (?) gets dressed. Slomo closeup of Bianca bundled up on deck. Slomo closeups of Nicolas, Francesca (who laughs), Dee, Lucas, Martin. Drone shot from close to the port quarter as TTToP triple-heads on port gybe. More cool drone shots with low sun behind them. Interesting that I think Jérémie managed to get everyone in the crew (other than himself) in this video.Dee, on the helm as they motor out, talks about going into the Southern Ocean, forecast for breeze. Francesca, trimming the main after the start, talks about the start. "We are close to the first, so that's perfect." Frederico talks while standing at the grinder (not sure what he's talking about). "But I start and it's all good now." MAPFRE is visible ahead and to leeward of them.Liz, sitting on the stack, jokes that Freddy's not very happy with the cruise he booked. Frederico, on the helm, goes along, talking about how he didn't see as many islands as he expected, but the food was very good. Can't complain. "The company was the best. You can see all my girls here." [laughter] "Not my girls; my friends. Sleeping was also very good, very comfortable, now that we are using the sleeping bags." Francesca, on the leeward side, talks about trying to see land, but being unable to see anything. Per the tracker, this would have been around 2017.11.21 09:09:58 UTC, when they were passing within a few miles of Tristan de Cunha. Liz, looking to leeward: "It's a bit of a dilemma on the old 'Land Ho' call. You'd normally need to see it to be able to make the call. We know it's 7 miles away, and you can see a little darkness in the fog. Do you call it? Or not?" We see an albatross to leeward. Liz (?) takes a gopro on a strut forward and gets slomo shots of spray from the J2 tack. She laughs. Slomo of Henry on the helm in the washing machine.Drone shot of TTToP sailing on a close reach on port. Dee, in the cockpit, talks about them being a few hours away from King Neptune's visit. Below, in the bow, Liz walks forward. "Hi. I'm Liz Wardley and I'm a science nerd." Liz explains that they've passed 3 degrees north, so they're going to deploy their drifter buoy to collect data. She cuts it loose and carries it aft. Dee, in the galley, explains more about the drifter buoy. On deck, we see a GoPro view of Frederico tossing the buoy off the stern, then we see the launching a second time, this time from the perspective of the drone hovering off their stern.On deck, in a shot titled "November 9, 2017" (2 days previously), Liz talks about how Nico's wife is due to deliver, and they have a chocolate mousse stashed in a food bag to celebrate. Liz: "I don't really mind about the baby, but I'd love to nail some chocolate mousse at the moment." Sam to Henry, on the helm: "Hank, do you have any kids?" Henry: "I have no kids, but I'm excited for the arrival of Nico's new girl. I've decided it's going to be a girl because Nico can only produce girls... And there's nothing sexist about that because girls are awesome." Camera pans to show Liz miming shoveling; the crew laughs. Frederico talks how it's awesome, struggles for word "born". We see TTToP reaching in stronger winds in a shot titled "Two days later..." Nico below, smiling: "I'm a father for second time, a small girl." Liz beams from her bunk in the background. Liz: "You happy?" She reaches out a hand; Nico clasps it. Henry, standing, smiles. They discuss her name: Catherine (in Britain). They joke about the chocalate mousse. Nico tells the people on deck, who cheer. Henry, below: "I'm super happy for him. I know Nico well from our days in the Figaro." Nico and Henry examine the chart at the nav station; Nico explains that he and his wife agreed that the child's middle name would be from somewhere near where the boat was at the time she was born, so he's looking at placenames in the Cape Verde Islands. Screenshot of the nav station computer running Outlook; Nico looks at pictures of his new daughter. Nico, to Dee: "It's better than a good sched." Dee: "Yeah. Much better news." Shot of Nico, smiling, on the after grinder pedestal. Dee, below, talks about how Brian Thompson's breaking his leg changed their navigator situation. She thanks Nico's wife for the sacrifice of having him on board during the birth of their child.TTToP is sailing on port gybe in about 10 knots with Annalise on the helm and Frederico on the mainsheet. Frederico narrates: "We are here in the hands of the Volvo 65 boats. We brought two of the greatest grinders in the world. Here you will see them catch the waves in 3, 2, 1, big trim guys! Trim!" Pulls back to a wider shot of Frederico tailing while plush toys Barney (purple dinosaur) (I think?) and Wisdom (albatross), which have had their arms taped to the handles, spin around madly. (Because someone out of frame is grinding a linked pedestal.) Frederico: "Trim, trim, trim, trim! Nice... Hold." Frederico: "So. Much. Massive. Weapons." Annalise laughs. Closeup of Wisdom.Liz on the helm at sunrise with TTToP surfing on starboard. Sam: "How's your hydration, Liz?" Liz: "My hydration? Well I've been drinking a lot of salt water. My tongue feels like it's twice the size that it should be. I think I'd prefer to be drinking beer than salt water. But I've got a little issue with my water bottle, because I managed to wash it with industrial soap and it tastes pretty bad. Now we're just sending it down a wave; wow!" Henry on deck: "Because it's been so wet on deck I've been drinking a lot of salt water, so my lips are feeling pretty dehydrated. It's hard to drink enough." Annalise on the stern with the dawn behind her: "When you're tired and you're cold you don't really want to drink anything, but you definitely need to... I'm keeping the electrolytes high: every time I get hit in the face with a wave... like now." Frederico, hanging onto the running backstay with the sunrise behind him, deadpan: "I'm a very lucky man. I'm having the time of my life." Henry, laughing: "Don't say it with such enthusiasm!" Henry is heading below; Liz, on the wheel, calls out to him, "Hey Bomby!" He turns around. Liz: "Um, just wait. Hang on a second." (He gets hit with spray.) Liz, laughing: "I just wanted to get you with a wave." Below, Annalise fills her water bottle in the galley. From cabin, shot of the crew on the stern in the washing machine, then pans to Henry drinking below. Annalise, below, sprays water on her face from a spray bottle. Henry, below in long underwear, holds a plastic pee bottle; after filling it he dumps it into the cockpit. Crew on the stern: "Oh, no! You're kidding!" Sam, standing in the hatch filming himself, to the crew in the cockpit: "I'm gonna throw up" (He does.) Sam: "No more breakfast." Sam, to Henry, below: "Why do you do this?" Henry: "Do what? Do the Volvo? Because when you're driving on deck downwind at 25 knots it's about as good as it gets. So it's worth the other stuff. [shrugs] And you get to eat porridge every morning as well."
