Pretty clouds. Crew shifting the stack as AkzoNobel sails downwind with the main lowered. Nicho explains that they've just finished stackign in preparation for hoisting the main. Talks about the repair; difficulty of getting a glue cure in the cold conditions. Maybe having a chance to catch some boats. Main goes up slowly. Nico, on the stern: "Tracks popped straight off. So obviously it couldn't hold in the conditions... Hopefully we'll get it down now, and... try it again. Still 3,000 miles to go." (Side note: It sure seems like Nicho has basically taken over the boat. Is Simeon even in command at this point?) Lowering the main. Martine gets washed off the cabin top by a wave; catches herself. They struggle to lower the main. Jules talks about the fleet being gone, not wanting to get down south and have to beat back, which they can't do. Nicho responds: "Well, we can step it down later in the day. Get a plan for this track. Even if the fleet's gone, get to Melbourne on time... for the next start." Below, Brad takes off his foulies. Looks very discouraged. "Pretty frustrating working two or three days to get it done, it pops off so quickly afterwards." Talks about trying to jury something else up, hope that that works. Slomo albatross. Below, working on the track repair, Nicolai watches Simeon eats in the background. "We've got five tubes of glue left, which means after this we've got one more. So this better work." More repair attempts on the mast. Emily watches from the stern. Nicolai, below, explains that the glue needs 6 to 8 hours to cure. Going to sail some more, and then try to hoist again before sunset.Liz, below, explains that they're actually closer to Cape Horn than to Capetown by a few hundred miles, and (on starboard) they're actually on layline [for Cape Horn]. "So I gave Dee the option, in case she wants to go around the world the wrong way again." Sterncam view looking forward. Below, Liz talks about seeing more rubbish in the water, and being curious what they're microplastic filter picks up. Liz: "It's pretty sad." Henry, stacking from starboard to port below, explains that they're going to gybe. On deck, we see the gybe. Dee jokes about the being closer to Cape Horn and her reputation for going the wrong way round. Nicolas jokes about how he's out of the cabin. Dee, with the sunset behind her, talks about how people are happier now that they're actually heading for their destination rather than away from it. Lucas: "Well, wind's dying; we're fucked. What else do you want me to say?" Sam, to Henry: "We just made really good miles to Capetown, right?" Henry (snorts): "For 10 minutes." Lucas, as they're back on starboard sailing towad the sunset: "Gybe, gybe, gybe, no sleep, french alarm clock, loss, loss, gybe, think we're winning, going to Cape Town, gybe, no wind, loss, Scallywag, bye. That way." (pointing ahead). Shots of Scallywag in the dusk, crossing them on port, then to leeward and ahead of them after gybing back to starboard. Lucas, in the last light of day: "Add a little tag on the end. Gybe, gybe, gybe, choke - no. Not choke. They choked. [coughs] Scallway, coughing. Here they are, right there. We're gonna roll them, right now. Let's go."Drone shot of Scallywag sailing on port gybe with A3, J2, and J3. Looks like it's near sunrise, with pretty clouds. Audio is Steve and Witty talking at the nav station. Witty: "Crossing us?" Steve: "Not crossing us... We're probably 20 miles ahead of him?" Steve, talking to Konrad at the nav station: "We're being as proactive as we can, trying to be smart abou where we put the boat, but... the doldrums can create an awful lot of mixup, and for sure these leaders are going to start losing miles. So what we're losing right now, we'll definitely get back a chunk of that if not more. Basically it's two days of really keeping the faith here now. A day from now I think we'll really have a different feeling on board in that we'll be gaining rather than losing. This sort of slow, steady loss is hard for everyone on board to swallow... At the moment we're not happy with where we are, but we will make gains. There's a very long way to go in this race." Shot of pre-dawn sky with crew silhouetted on the stern. Another drone shot like the opening shot. Witty, in cockpit: "Every time Steven Hayles comes on deck on another sched and says we've lost they have to put their trusty Leatherman away so they don't slash their wrists. It's quite depressing for 6 to 8 hours and find out that you've lost." Shot of Alex on the helm. Witty: "It's not all over. There's still a bloody long way to go. As they say, 'Keep plugging away.'" Drone shot from above.Ross talks to Simeon at the nav station. They're pointing out different boats. Simeon to Konrad: "MAPFRE slipped away underneath us. We thought we were doing the righ thting, but it must have gone still on the inside, and the rich got richer basically. Hopefully it will happen the same to us. We still have a little to go to the waypoint. But hopefully we'll make a gap with the rest of the fleet, and go for the hunt." Simeon rubs his face and forehead in apparent discouragement.
