Dockout. Starting line, with Vestas, Dongfeng, and TTToP. Brunel behind them. Scallywag right behind. Scallywag ducks them at a mark rounding. Jumper jumps off. Simeon: I think we had a good plan on the start. But just a few seconds after the start it's such a critical position. Fell back. But recovered well. Middle fleet. Nicolai helmed well. We're rolling Turn the Tide now; we'll keep close to the top to guys so uh- (And then the video cuts off. Um, Brian?)Spreader cam view of AkzoNobel triple-heading. Bow cam view looking aft. Someone (Martine?) looking forward through binoculars, presumably at a competitor. Shot forward from behind the wheel of washing machine and a competitor crossing ahead of them (Dongfeng). Nicolai, standing on the stern trimming the main, talks about Dongfeng and (unfortunately) MAPFRE crossing them. Last night they were behind us; now they've crossed us. Not the best morning. But still 15 mornings to go. Shot of the other boat to port. Stern cam footage of them sailing on starboard. Jules and Nicho sit at the nav station talking strategy. Nicho, eating: "No shortage of breeze." Martine below. She guesses she got the most sleep, but not anymore. Going to be gybing. Luke: With the two gybes in his off-watch he got about an hour of sleep during his four off. Jules talks about having lost a lot of distance to the boats nearby. Did some good gybes, got a couple of hundred meters behind Brunel. But now they've coughed up some distance. Spreader cam view of shifting the stack aft.Dongfeng departs as "Uptown Funk" plays. Jérémie waves to the crowd on the dock. Jack talks about it being good to get away. Thinking too much in preparation; butterflies. But after the start they'll just sail. Marie talks about being ready; "let's go." Carolijn talks about the very nice goodbye before heading off into the Southern Ocean. Toughest leg, but the best leg in the whole race. Looking forward to digging south and doing some fast sailing. Also, arriving in Brazil is special. Shot of the start, Charles: "Good start." Close views of other boats alongside. Pascal calls wind. Carolijn asks if it's a bearaway or a gybe set. Shots of crosses as they sail downwind, then tacking upwind. Their jumper does a faceplant; they laugh. Ducking MAPFRE, then trailing MAPFRE on the long starboard tack. Lowering the J1 on the foredeck. Brunel close behind them; TTToP pounding behind them.Dongfeng departs as "Uptown Funk" plays.

Simeon steers with one hand and waves with the other as they leave the dock. Brad, on the bow, talks about a lot of emotions but trying to keep the eyes on the prize. Auckland put on a great show. Hard to leave it to be honest. Start, with AkzoNobel ducking the fleet on port. Nicolai on the helm: "Okay; we're racing." Brad hiking. Sailing upwind with other boats crossing (all the other boats in the shot). Brad hoisting the A3 as they approach the weather mark. Rouding the weather mark. Shot of TTToP screwing up; heeling bigtime with their A3 not deployed (keel position issue?). Gybing, running. Simeon talks about leaving Auckland, nice conditions at the start. Going into the open ocean now. Slomo spray as they go to weather. Slomo on the foredeck as they pack the A3, while sailing to weather under the J1.Parade out to the boat; conch being blown.

Bouwe is on the aft pedestal; Peter is on the helm. MAPFRE tacks ahead of the; they tack short. Then they converge on port with oncoming fleet on starboard: Scallywag, Vestas, TTToP, and then AkzoNobel still on port. Peter, steering from the leeaward wheel, calls: "A little dip here." We see them ducking Vestas and TTToP; MAPFRE and Dongfeng are visible ahead of them on port tack. Carlo calls the duck on the foredeck, then walks aft. Then we see Dongfeng crossing behind them under their A3 going downwind, then TTToP crossing behind them going upwind as Liz goes onto the foredeck. Carlo talks about how the start has been good. Then we see their jumper jump. Capey calling 5 minutes to the mark. Coiling lines in the pit. Bashing to weather on the foredeck.Tacking out of Auckland harbor after the start.

Dee points out Brunel on the horizon ahead of them. Brian talks about how they've held onto Brunel, and gained ground on Dongfeng and MAPFRE behind them. Closing in on Brunel. Drone shot showing both boats in light air, with rain cloud in the distance. Drifting conditions with Brunel a few hundred yards off their bow. Nicolas talks with Brian as Brunel drifts a hundred yards off their starboard beam. Brunel falling behind them, then just ahead of them. Dee, on the helm, about how it's crazy to sail three and a half thousand miles and be side-by-side with their buddies. Suddenly wind is ahead of them. They cross Brunel on port, with Liz giving a "woo hoo!" on the helm. Lucas talks about how good it was to gain and cross ahead of them. Brunel crossing behind them. They wave.Grinding. MAPFRE on port gybe, Dongfeng passing a half mile behind them on starboard. Xabi, below, talks about battle with Dongfeng, gybing along the exclusion zone, now more of a drag race. Shot of stackign in the cockpit. Slomo of stacking sailors in the washing machine. Xabi: "I'd prefer to be the hunted than the hunter." Rob, below, talks about competition bringing out the best of both teams. Changing between the MH0 and the FR0. Shot in the cockpit as they're sailing fast on starboard gybe with Willy trimming. Xabi below, talks about a lot happening in the days ahead. A lighter patch, then a tough low that will be very windy, though not as much as a week ago. Then the tricky approach to Melbourne. Rob talks about chipping away at Dongfeng. Slomo washing machine on deck. Xabi: "I think the crew is performing 100%." Performance improving, and needs to through the end of the race. But everyone is motivated and hungry.Dongfeng, on starboard, crosses behind MAPFRE on port. Possibly the same cross seen in the previous MAPFRE video? Shot of spray on the bow, in sun, as Dongfeng triple-heads on port gybe. Drone shot of Dongfeng sailing on port gybe witih MAPFRE crossing on starboard about a mile behind them. Kevin steering. Someone grinding. Drone shots of Dongfeng sailing fast. Kevin talks about gybing with MAPFRE along the ice limit. "We had the last good move... It's nice to see that after one week of race we are still seeing each other."MAPFRE is sailing downwind on port gybe. Pablo is steering, Louis is grinding, Blair is trimming. Blair squints into the sun. "Where are they?" Shot of Dongfeng crossing on starboard a few hundred yards astern of them. [Note: This might be a different time than the squinting; it's no overcast.] Blair talks to Jen about how this morning earlier they'd gone below after a gybe and heard them easing the sheets, poked his head up and say MAPFRE cross about 5 meters behind Dongfeng. Talks about giving a "cheeky wave." "Since then there's been 3 or 4 crosses, and they're about a mile ahead now." Slomo washing machine.Kevin (yay!) on the deckhouse gathers the main as they reef it. Below, Marie talks to Kevin while Jack puts on his foulie top. Kevin, to Martin: "Good weather to be back. Good weather to start the new leg." Talks about strategy. "We are the first to tack to be back inshore... Second place, I think. Just in front of MAPFRE and just behind Brunel." He talks about how they have 35 knots of wind, which you can hear howling in the rigging. Says it should decrease all night, and a reach tomorrow morning. He goes on deck. Marie, below, talks about the conditions. Sunny, should have a good sunset with the Cape of Good Hope, a bit bumpy. "I had last night a filet of beef with french fries. It was awesome." Talks about the good fresh food they still have. PBJ. Sunset behind them. See them coming in toward shore beating on starboard tack, shifting the stack to leeward in preparation for tacking. MAPFRE ducks them on port SUPER close; whoa! Slomo of the duck. Below, Fabien changes out of his foulies, talks wiht Martin about how he's completely wet. Up to 40 knots at times, he says.Drone shot of Vestas doing an inside gybe of the MH0 from starboard to port. Drone shots of Vestas and Brunel, including a shot of Vestas crossing ahead of Brunel on port gybe, with Brunel on starboard gybe, triple-heading, in the foreground of the shot. That is, it's another shot (like Konrad's of TTToP from Scallywag) in which the OBR flew the drone beyond their competitor, then got a shot of both the competitor and their own boat with the competitor in the foreground. That is some kick-ass drone work.Sunrise. Kyle coils a line while silhouetted against the sunrise. Below, Bouwe tells the crew they're gybing. On deck, we see the gybe from port to starboard. On the helm, Bouwe says it will be interesting to see if Vestas continues on the old gybe. Maciel points out Vestas. Telephoto shot of Vestas. Capey and Annie looking through binoculars. Stacking below. Abby, on deck: "We're on opposite gybes; looks like Vestas is just crossing in front." We see Vestas, on port gybe, cross a few hundred meters ahead of Brunel. Per the tracker, this cross was at 2017-11-17 1118 UTC. Slomo of cross. Peter on the helm with Vestas in the background. Carlo, in the cockpit: "I've never been racing so long, and still within a couple of minutes of each other." Capey at the nav station. Slomo of Carlo.
