Brian in the hatch talks to the helm about Dongfeng and their course. He comes up and talks to Dee at the middle pedestal. Bianca, below, talks about it being frustrating that they don't have the pace the others have. Liz: Always more stressful when you have all the boats around you. Right at this moment we're going pretty bad, so it's been a pretty stressful 4 hours... We're getting overtaken... Bagging a sail on the foredeck. Ratcheting down the stack. Bianca, sounding emotional (or a little seasick. But I think probably just emotional): We've come close to getting podium finishes. Frustrating... As a team we've grown so much. We came together really late, and we've dedicated 10 months of our lives to trying to sail with each other. Really want a podium finish. Failing that, we want to get a couple of boats between us and Scallywag to move up in the standings. It's been fantastic sailing with this lot. And it's kind of sad coming so closely to an end. Have to make the most of these last two legs, because this might be the last time we all sail with each other. But it's been awesome. They're all family now. Bianca sprays water on Liz, then on herself. Helmsperson raises his/her arms. Liz, below: Going pretty good. Gonna be a pretty tough night. Washing machine shot through the hatch. Grinding. Liz: Finishing the race with Scallywag behind us... I don't wanna come last. We don't deserve to come last. We've been quicker on the water; just maybe haven't had as much luck.Sailing through islands at dusk. Annalise: This morning we woke up, and I could see Ireland. I think we were able to smell it before we could see it. Fine smell of farming. Sailed along near Baltimore, where I sailed a lot as a kid. Drifted past the Fastnet, sailed around the corner of Mizzen Head, and I think everyone is impressed by the scenery. Brunel. Vestas ahead of them approaching Fastnet Rock. AkzoNobel behind them leaving Fastnet Rock. Annalise: I haven't actually seen it from this side. I've seen it from a Laser, but that's close to the coast. Very special to see it from here. Lost a little to the other boats; going to have a tack-a-thon this evening up the west coast of Ireland. Bianca. Other boats past a headland ahead of them. Annalise, sunset behind her: Grown as a team, gotten better and better. A lot of times we've led during the leg and then not quite done it at the finish. Hoping we can pull together as a team at the end. Show that the 50/50 team works, don't need bucketloads of experience; youth and enthusiasm helps as well. Francesca in the sunset. Crew below. Annalise: Our team, we really want a podium finish. If we could walk away with two good results in these two legs, it would be a massive confidence boost... Either way we have to be happy with how we've sailed. Finishing minutes behind teams with 20 times the experience we have... The results don't show it, but I know, and we know, we have sailed well. We've made mistakes, but generally we have sailed well. Hopefully we'll be rewarded. Land.Sunrise. Liz hands over the wheel to Frederico. At 13 knots she had just under 10 on the keel; at 15 she brings it up again. She debriefs with him about height-vs-speed tradeoff. Dee at the nav station. "Just got the position report. Probably only about 36-40 hours of sailing left." Closed with Vestas, but everyone else is sailing faster than them. MAPFRE have just moved into view on the horizon, only 6 miles away. "Bloody red boat again... Race for third is full on, between ourselves, Vestas, and MAPFRE." She says she's gutted, but she has to be positive when she goes on deck. Martin steering, Dee comes up. MAPFRE is 8 miles away. Points out Brunel and Vestas ahead. Henry talks with her about the strategic situation. Annalise: Been able to see them both for an hour now. Had our suspicions that it was MAPFRE... A full-on last day into the finish. Hopefully we can finish strongly and be happy when we get into Newport. Drone show from low alongside the bow. Dee: The fight for third place... could be the difference is a rain cloud. Big depression with 35 knots of wind coming through... Boats could change places at the finish line with a puff of breeze. I'm kind of nervous and excited at the same time. Drone shot of them unfurling the J3 to triple-head.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.Shot of MAPFRE and Dongfeng closing. Nicolas talks about how far behind they were a day ago; now they have 8 knots of wind while TTToP is drifting. Bernardo talks about going asleep with them out of sight, and on top of the leaders, but then waking up and having the two trailing boats on their hip. They're fighting with each other; hopefully we can sail away and go for third place. Francesa takes a line off the clew of the MH0 while Bianca holds onto her. Dee talks about how it's a lot tighter than they expected. They tracked the boats in front down and got much closer, but then they got the breeze, and meanwhile the boats bdhind caught them. She'll be absolutely gutted if they don't get the result they deserve. Liz looking intense on the helm. Henry: We've been racing for three weeks, and we have a 100-mile race beween 5 boats. It's gonna be a big next 10 hours, and hopefully we can hold on and get on the podium... Two fastest boats in the fleet bearing down on us. Going to be an intense few hours.
