Peter, below: Not sure what happened, but the polars seemed down a bit. Just before, we saw this strange horse on deck. Sam launches a drone out of the hatch, sails along the weather rail, where a person is wearing the horse mask on the helm.Drone shot labeled "Somewhere in the Bermuda Triangle". Bouwe, Peter, Abby talk about the Bermuda Triangle. Carlo mentions seeing another boat behind them. Capey makes a flying saucer with a dish. Carlo asks Bouwe to explain the Flying Dutchman story. Abby talks about it more. What is so special or different about this place. "Fingers crossed we make it through and out the other side." Drone shot with eerie music. Capey: Guys! What's gone wrong with the GPS, we've lost all the coms. Oh, shit the compass has gone too. Capey disappears. Then, in the drone shot, Brunel disappears.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.Maciel jokes about how they're sailing in all kinds of weird directions in this leg. (They're sailing on starboard gybe and from the light it appears to be afternoon. I'm guessing this is from the afternoon of 2017-11-18, when they were sailing southwest, away from Cape Town.) Alberto, on the helm, agrees. Alberto: "We go west, and then we go south, and then we go north to go to Cape Town."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."Nicolas, on the weather rail in his boxer shorts, trims his nails. Henry (I think?) who is trimming the mainsheet ahead of him, holds out his free hand; Nicolas trims Henry's nails. Nicolas explains that he's going to clean his teeshirt. Below, we see Nicolas in his shorts washing his shirt in the galley sink. In the cockpit, Annalise steers and Henry (?) jokes to Dee: "He's definitely a navigator. Everyone else brings there... high performance boxers, and he just brings his cottony flowery ones. 'Eh; I'm never gonna be on deck.'" Below, Nicolas washes his clothes in the sink. "In order to finish the leg as a human and not an animal." Liz, on the aft pedestal: "Yeah; he's a bit random. But I guess he is french. I guess it wasn't his choice to be french." We see Nicolas's flowery boxers hanging form the boom to dry as he heads below.POV shot of someone in the galley examining an empty bottle of chili sauce. Tony, on the middle pedestal in the cockpit in the mornnig as Vestas sails on starboard gybe: "We think we have a sauce thief." Jena: "The sauce is gone, and the theory is that our camera guy secretly at night will go and take the sauce." Mark, on the helm: "The barbecue sauce is the best. It goes on everything. And there's none of it."Daryl stands on the boom and points out the letters on the branding. Daryl: "This one's for you Phil. This is how you spell Dongfeng. D-O-N-G-F-E-N-G. Dongfeng!" Update: Per the DF twitter, it's "Daddy's spelling lesson." So maybe Phil is Daryl's son. https://twitter.com/DongfengRacing/status/932539685028749312Below, Nicolai and Brad eat out of food packets. They discuss their week. Nicolai: "Monday was my birthday." Intercut with shot of Brad hitting Nicolai with a pie in his face. Brad: "I thought that's what you do in Denmark." Nicolai: "Nah." Brad: "Not a tradition?" They go over the rest of the week with intercut shots of various things. End up talking about the upcoming week. Nicolai tells Brad Neptune is waiting for him. Brad, shirtless, lounges by the galley as Nicolai washes a utensil. Nicolai: "I've crossed the equator. He's not waiting for me; he's waiting for you."Alberto sits in the cockpit laughing quietly. Off-camera, Abby asks him something. He points at the camera.At the nav station, Nicolas talks with Dee about the latest sched. Nicolas: "It's not that drama." (?) Dee: "Yeah, thank god." Nicolas: "It is possible to think that they were 150 miles ahead." Dee: "Easily." Dee talks to Sam: "So where we thought life was ending for us, all is not lost. We're the furthest west, which is where Nico wanted to be." On deck in the evening, standing in the pit, Liz says: "I'm gonna go and have a celebratory dump because we just had a great sched." Lucas: "You made that word up. Celebrate-y isn't even a word, is it?" Liz: "Celebratory? Yes, celebratory is totally a word." Lucas: "It's not a word." Liz: "It is. It is a word. I just said it, so it must be a word. It came out of my mouth, so it is a word. Celebratory, celebratory, celebratory..." On the stern, Liz squats down and acts like she's about to pull down her shorts, then straighens up and laughs. Liz: "Get out of it." Two crewmembers (I think maybe Annalise on the helm and Bianca sitting forward of the helm?) laugh.Pretty clouds before dawn. Witty, on the foredeck, coordinates with the cockpit on sail trim. In the cockpit, Witty jokes about having ADHD: "I'm like a cat chasing its tail. Like a little baby cat chasing its tail." Annemieke checks sail trim. From the pit, she talks to Konrad about sailtrim. Shot of her trimming before dawn. Annemieke: "You have to really adapt quickly. If you hang around too long on a certain setting, you can lose a few miles on the rest of the fleet." Witty: "Clearly, I actually have no idea what I'm doing. I'm just lucky the ropes are different colors." On the foredeck, Witty helps stack the sails forward.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.In early mornnig Steve steers. Winds are about 7 knots with Scallywag on port gybe. Witty stands next to Steve and does narration for a mock TV show, the "Steven Hayles Breakfast Show." Witty: "Lovely morning here on Scallywag!" He introduces the crew: "the definining chin laws Tom Clout" (?) (on mainsheet), Alex Gough. Witty: "We also have our raging psychopath safety officer, John F-f-f-fisher." Camera pans to reveal Fish wearing what looks like a muzzle as he stands at the aft pedestal. Witty: "From the northern beaches of Amsterdam, Dr. Clogs!" Annemieke, wearing a false gray beard, gives a thumbs up. Steve asks Dr. Clogs: "Our skipper David has a rash on his scrotum, and I would like to know how these two are meant to apply the Sudocrem." Annemieke is unable to answer. [Edit: Video appears to have been removed, presumably by VOR media people in response to the Rule 69 protest referencing it? Dunno.]Witty, below, stages a mock cooking show by Humphry B. Bear. Stirs in water, closes up the container, then opens another one to show the final result.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."On deck as AkzoNobel surfs on port gybe, Brad, behind Nicolai's back, sprays whipped cream onto a plastic cake box lid. He says to Nicolai, "Here you go," and pushes the "pie" into Nicolai's face. With Simeon steering, the crew in the cockpit eats cake and sings "Happy Birthday" to Nicolai. Nicolai: "Best cake I ever had." Nicolai: "I was on a boat like this in the North Sea with Simeon." Emily: "Did he give you cake?" Nicolai: "It was more colder. It was more miserable, there was less fun and there was no cake. So I prefer this one over the last one." Washing machine shots of Nicolai getting doused. Nicolai back at the cake-eating: "My teammates are being really rough on me today. They put whipped cream in my face, which is not a smart move when you're about to go across the equator in one week." Brad: "I heard that's a Danish tradition though." Nicolai: "It's not a smart move." Brad, eating cake: "It's a Danish tradition." Nicolai: "It's not a smart move. When you're crossing the equator in one week, King Neptune's got a few things to sort out and you don't put whipped cream in my face; that's not a smart move."Sunrise shot of the helm as Scallywag surfs on starboard gybe. Shot of the foredeck as they hoist a sail. They have three headsails up already (Fractional or Masthead 0, J2, and J3, maybe?); this looks like they're hoisting the A3 to replace the Code 0, maybe. Washing machine shot of the helm. Witty, in the cabin, talks to the crew in the cockpit. Witty: "I just said, do you want me to find something else to put up? You're triple-headed, are you?" Witty, below, talks to Konrad: "We've got every piece of sail up you could get up here in over 30. Problem is they've just been a little bit lower than us, so we thought we'd fix the problem and put everything up. We are now definitely sailing the lowest." Washing machine shot of cockpit. Witty: "It does sound quite horrific, doesn't it? [Laughs; adopts mock-gravity voice.] Man your battle stations, lads. Get ready for disaster."Nicolas, below: "The news is, we have just gybed a couple of minutes ago." Liz pesters him with Wisdom, a plush toy albatross. Nicolas: "With Wisdom we have one more crewmember on board... We still have 20, 25 knots of windspeed." (Liz keeps pestering him, having the albatross attack him, lick his face. He keeps pushing it away; tries to go on with the interview.) "We are not so far away from Madeira." Sam (to albatross): "What do you think, Wisdom?" Wisdom (voiced by Liz, off-camera): "This is really exciting! We're gonna see land, and other boats, and we're gonna gybe again, and then we're gonna stack, and then we're gonna tack, and then we're gonna gybe, and bail water out of the boat, and we're gonna annoy Nicolas, and it's gonna be really really really fun. [Wisdom does a barrel roll.] Woo!"Jérémie, below: "We are full speed in 35 knots of wind. It is quite intense." Pascal, below: "It's good for everybody in the team when we lead when we start the race, of course... It was quite exciting... With this boat we have to use a big sail and push, to push, to push... [grins] I think sometimes it is good to stay inside."Horace talks with Richard on deck in the morning. Richard: "At this point, how much would third place mean to you?" Horace: "Third place?" Richard: "Yeah." Horace (smiling): "We're not finished." Richard (laughs): "Good answer." Horace: "So... anything will be happening at the finish line. So we'll be, maybe, we'll finish by first, no?"Witty, on the helm: "Good morning, Lisbon! Here come the Scallywags of Hong Kong! We have Steven Hayles from the Steven Hayles Breakfast Show. We have Tom Clout from developing chin lines. And our favorite psychopathic safety officer John Fisher sucking down the porridge from behind. From behind!" John talks about where the different boats are in the race, to be shouted down by Witty. Witty: "You're boring! You're never gonna be a guest on the Steve Hayles Breakfast Show." Steve brushing his teeth; Steve: "The arrival?" Jérémie: "Yeah." Steve: "We're thinking of just keeping going. A practice lap. We're just gonna around again. Because we didn't do it right this time." They joke about the position of the pockets on Steve's jacket. Steve: "It's always been easy to predict the past, I find. The trick is predicting the future. I don't know where to put my hands."Cockpit interviews near sunset. Annalise: "We're having a little battle with Brunel." Liz: Trying to get the navigator to move up the tack so she can go off watch. "The clock is ticking..." (taps watch). Dee laughs from the helm. Shot of Brunel on their weather quarter; Dee on the helm.Brad (gesturing at Dongfeng, off camera): "If we hold these guys off that'd mean we had 6th place. But if we hold these guys *and* the guys behind them off, that'd be 3rd place." Nicolai, on the helm: "That was funny. You're a funny man." Brad: "Stop it."Shots of a land bird (some kind of old world warbler, I think?) perched on Ross's head. He and Nicolai (on the helm) joke about it.Shot of crew in the cockpit at twilight; Liz on the helm but not sure about the other two. One crewmember gestures to a crewmember in the cabin to come out; another raises her hand to stop her just as a wave washes over the cabin. Appears to be joking going on about it.Witty, sitting in the cockpit, to Tom: "Can you not tell John Fisher that I fucking think he's a fuckwit? The safety officer?" Tom: "I don't think he heard you." Witty: "He measures the length of his fingernails before he goes to be every night. What sort of a psycopath does that?" Tom: "No." Witty: "Yeah, he does, I've seen him. The safety officer." John, smiling: "It's a good atmosphere on board. Everyone gets on pretty well on this team. There's a lot of frivolity and a bit of joking and mickey-taking. It helps break up the tension and serious moments. It's a good thing... I think we're all pretty happy. The realization is it's a hard race. The boat's are all very equal. You fight for every mile you can get, and every time something doesn't go quite right you lose miles." Witty grinding, mugging for the camera. John joins him on the handles. Witty: "What are you doing? Fuck off. *Fuck* off." Laughing. Shot of Scallywag sailing into the sunset.Horace, below at the galley: "I like it when we're arriving at the pontoon, at the shore, we have the fresh food. It's much better than this one." Marie: "Yes. Of course... It's food, so it's good for the body..." Horace: "Let me ask you a question: When you are arriving on the pontoon, what's the first thing you want to do?" Marie: "A big steak, with french fries!" Horace: "You don't want to shower?" Marie: "No... after." Horace: "We will have our beer, on the pontoon." Marie: "Celebrate our victory with all the team." Horace: "Victory!" Marie: "Yeah!" They laugh. Horace, to Richard: "You see?"Stacey, on deck in drifting conditions at sunset: "I've been looking to see the green flash my entire life. I reckon I saw every sunset in the last race and never once saw the green flash." Tony: "A lot of people think it's mythical, but I can assure you it's real. I've got non-believers laughing at me down the hatch right now." Nick (?) from below: "No, no, no, seriously; I'm sure there'll be a unicorn under that flash." Other voice: "I've seen it." Tony: "Also a member of the Flat Earth Society." Shot of dusk, young moon over calm sea. SiFi, at nav station: "MAPFRE up here to the north. She's going quite well. She's still in an easterly... Have to hope a little bit. Hope we get round in front of them."Rob at the wheel: "The wind's only going to get lighter from here, the next 24 hours, and we're just trying to find the best way through this light transition. Talks about Vestas. Xabi on the helm. Sophie fiddling with the stack on the bow. Then Sophie sitting on the stack while Blair pops up out of the hatch looking at the camera like a gopher.
