Dee reads a question: Would you rather have a bad short-term memory or a bad long-term memory. Would you rather have unlimited sushi for life or unlimited tacos for life. Who said, I'll have one of what she's having. Elodie gets it: When Harry Met Sally. More trivia... Bleddyn talks about something he saw Carolijn do in a video off Dongfeng from the last leg. Bleddyn: Started racing at 8 or 9 years old in a Merit dinghy, sailing with my dad in the local sailing club at Anglesea (sp?). Then Toppers (plastic boat) and just followed in my brother's footsteps. He was 3 or 4 years older than me. When I was 14 years old I thought sailing was what I wanted to do, but my parents were good about keeping my feet on the ground. At university had some opportunities to do some professional sailing. And then had the opportunity to join an America's Cup team. The degree definitely came in handy. The Volvo: I knew about the race, but a type of sailing I'd never experienced before. Dee approached me after the America's Cup finished in Bermuda. So I went along and had my first night offshore in a Volvo 65. And my first race was Leg 0 in the Volvo. Definitely not the background most Volvo sailors have had. Always fun to learn a new boat. One design; we're all learning very fast. And in the last leg we're competing more with the more experienced teams. Very special to have the race ending in Wales, in Cardiff. Would like to be higher in the standings, but that's the way it goes. Looking forward to arriving and meeting my family. Dee, below: It makes me laugh when I think back to a year ago when he came to trial, he'd never been offshore before. Very intelligent, very analytical. At the beginning he didn't know how to live on a boat. He's now one of our key trimmers and drivers, and does all our data analysis at the end of each leg. And now he's our Welsh hero, heading into Cardiff.Awesome slomo drone footage of Vestas surfing. Charlie on the helm. Drone shots. Charlie, below: Really excited to get to Newport, and Bristol, R.I., where I'm from. They earned and deserve this stopover. Hopefully can improve our position a bit... I learned to sail growing up on Narragansett Bay. It's a place that's gotten a lot cleaner over the years. When I was a young whippersnapper wasn't a great place to go swimming or eat shellfish from. But they've made progress in recent years. He talks about the Ocean Summit that he'll be speaking at. When people come together actions can be taken that improve our waterways. Another reason he's really excited to get home is to see his family. It will have been over a month. He has two little kids, one 2 1/2 and the other 1. He'll be walking... Talks about the family's support. Drone shots of them surfing fast triple-heading. Tony on the helm. Mark grinding. He explains that they got important news from Hawaii, that the local legislature banned sunscreen that's harmful to coral reefs. Drone shot. S-curve to clear weed from the leeward rudder. Drone shots.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.
