Time lapse footage. Dolphins swimming alongside. Slomo dolphins. Dolphins under the bow. Kevin: Quite a few. Pretty nice, out of the fog, sunny. Sliding up to the finish, and still pushing hard, and things may happen in the river. Dolphins alongside. Stu laces through the lifelines and goes max-hike. Stu on the helm: Every result from here is going to be super important. Every team is going to be working as hard as they can. If it finishes like it is now it closes up the leaderboard a lot. Instruments.Time lapse of the cockpit from the stern at night. Jules, at the nav station, explains that they're trying to negotiate some current, but didn't do as well as the boats ahead of them. Emily, below, sprays water on herself. Jules: Using larger sails, VMG running. Less concerned about the current, more about the clouds. Unstable wind; lots of rain.Martine explains that no one has slept much because they've had a vew opportunities with clouds. Night shots of them sailing. Scallywag is behind her. Shots of the crew with Scallywag in the distance. Brad talks about having Brunel, Dongfeng, Scallywag, and MAPFRE next to them. Timelapse of the cabin, and then of the cockpit, then the nav station. Nicho: The benefit is lack of sleep. If you enjoy lack of sleep there's a high benefit to being this close to other boats. Drone shot of AkzoNobel and Brunel sailing a hundred yards apart. Shot from the deck of three boats on the horizon. Nicho explains that you can try out mode variations vs. the other boats. In this upwind stuff they haven't been consistently strong, so they need to work that out. "Yeah, we do need to get that sorted."Time lapse from the stern cam as darkness falls. Simeon, below, talks about the wind dropping and going right. Probably will do the stack and get on the hip of those guys. Below, Martine and Brad stacking. Jules at the nav station. Night shot of stars, moon. Luke, in the dark, explains that they're right on the crossover of the J1 and the Masthead 0, and it's difficult to know if they should change or not, if the better sail will pay for the loss incurred in the sail change. "Where we are in the fleet at the moment we can't afford to make any losses."Time lapse of the cabin below. Nicolai: We're not going so well this morning. We're reshuffling the weight of the boat. It's quite painful when you're losing. Simeon on the helm; Luke crossing the cockpit in slomo. Emily looks through binoculars at a competitor on their port side. Luke: Have been struggling. Breeze is shifty and up and down. "It's not the easiest sailing, and we haven't been doing it particularly well... Put it down to learning I guess."Time lapse below of Martine (I think?) getting into her bunk. Simeon at the nav station: Whole fleet is close to each other; 4 or 5 miles. Increase of wind in the night, but very unstable. Pretty busy on deck. Sails on/sails off. At the moment we're making good progress. Probably will tack in the next couple of hours, whenever Jules is happy.Stern cam / crash cam shot of MAPFRE sailing on port gybe. There's a bang, and the boom drops and the main flops. This must have been when the head of the main tore free. A crewmember shouts: "Aaaaahhhh!" GoPro (Garmin) shot from the crewmember up the mast (Ñeti?). "¡Un poquito!" There's glue and stuff on the mast. The torn upper edge of the lower part of the main is visible. They approach their support boat at anchor. Drone shots of them rafted alongside. Someone on the shore team talks in Spanish. Pablo: In one sense we were lucky to break so close by. Ñeti, covered in glue, talks about the attempt to repair the mast. He's more concerned about the mainsail. It's in two pieces. Quite a tricky repair with the material they have here and where they are. And it's quite cold, so curing is hard. In the dark, Xabi talks in Spanish about the repair attempts. I think he said departing in half an hour. Shots of them working on the mainsail. Glue, hot air gun, cluing the mast track. Time-lapse shot of them working on the mainsail repair. They pull away from the support boat in the night with wind howling around them.Dee, below, talks about the strategy picture coming into Auckland. Ideally they'll bring in the new wind and can catch the guys in front. Dee and Brian at the nav station. Dee on how it's hard when it's the last littlte bit in a straight line. The end of this race will be different, with opportunitites. Time lapse drone shot of sunrise. Of the cockpit as theyr'e sailing. Below, of the cockpit. The sunset.Awesome high drone shot showing Dongfeng sailing past an atoll. Pascal at the nav station. He explains that they are near New Caledonia, passing a small atoll. It's name is "Surprise". Drone shot traveling over the reef, then returning to Dongfeng. Daryl talks about passing the atoll, part of New Caledonia. They then pass another atoll, this time on its leeward side. Time-lapse shot of Kevin on the helm as evening falls. Favoriting this one for those cool reef shots from the drone.Below, Bouwe says the "day bag" is empty. No chocolate. Kyle digs around in the galley. "Not much choice." Peter looks around as an alarm sounds (or maybe it's just the engine?). He eats in the galley. "Last night's dinner: it's becoming breakfast... Never quite sure what it is. It's food." Carlo digs through the food bag. Explains that everyone's a little hungry. Didn't bring as much food as they normally do. Light air leg means they want to keep the weight down. He goes through the food. "Going to be good to sail into Auckland and have some real food again." He laughs with Alberto and Sally. "Stew twice: Chicken stew and beef stew." He tosses a bag to Kyle, jokes about looking at the food for an hour first, to stretch it. Time-lapse shot of the food bin in the galley as people take stuff from it.Sunrise. Dee leads a "happy birthday" song as Bernardo comes up from below. She explains that they've gained 17 miles on Brunel; they're 35 miles ahead. Gained on the gus behind. And gained 30 miles on Akzo. Brian looking at a cloud, talks to Francesca on the helm. High drone shot of hte rain storm a mile away from them. Liz: Talks about the cloud growing in size; glad they were in front of it not behind it. Another little one starting in front of them that's going to take the breeze away. A fun game, catching clouds. When you get it right it's great. When you get it wrong it's painful. Time lapse shot of cloud building. TTToP sailing fast. Henry, below, on trying to shoot the gap between clouds. 100-degree windshift. Shots of him on the helm. Nicolas, at the nav station: It's not easy because the wind is not stable at all. Pretty sunset.They sail on starboard toward a rainstorm in light conditions. Drone shot circling them with the MH0 up. Trystan explains what the doldrums are with rainstorms on the horizon behind them. Alex: "It's a shitshow." Rain. Witty: "Roll the dice time." Cloud management. Can't really worry too much about what the other guys are doing. Rain on the horizon. Sped up drone shot circling the boat. Light conditions. Fisheye lens. Libby on the helm; Annemieke wearing goggles (why the goggles?).High drone shot showing Dongfeng in the foreground and AkzoNobel in the background. It's a pretty distant shot, and makes me wonder: The OBRs haven't been using this opportunity to get drone closeups of their competitors (which they did, a little, in Leg 2). I bet there was some kind of agreement to limit that, presumably for competitive reasons (i.e., an extension of the "OBR shall not contribute to the racing" concept, such that they shouldn't be potentially helping their crew steal info about setup on the other boats). Anyway, Sam's voice is lapped over the shot: "Nicho, tell me about the art of sailing through the doldrums." We see Nicho, who tells a story about meeting with a meterologist who talked about clouds all day, and he asked him how to tell a good cloud from a bad one. "There is an element of luck... I"m lucky I enjoy it." Luke talks about being stuck in the doldrums, playing cat-and-mouse with Dongfeng. Overlapped with a time-laps of the drone shot of the two boats - which I realize now shows a third boat, Vestas, ahead of them both. Simeon, on the helm, talks about trying to sail from puff to puff. Shot of Dongfeng ahead of them and to leeward. Luke talks about how he thinks Dongfeng is probably tense on board, with their close competitor MAPFRE close by. Shot of a rain cloud. Drone shot from astern as the sun is setting to port with a competitor on the horizon while Brad is hoisted up the mast. Drone shots circling him at the masthead showing rain clouds and the other boats around them. Nicolai talks about them sending Brad up to look for the beeze, having 5 boats in the same area. Simeon, shirtless with the low sun on him, talks about being pretty happy with the situation. "Fighting, you know, every single watch and hour." A shot of them approaching a competitor (I think; unless it's a low-altitude drone shot of their own boat) with the sunset sky behind them. We see the other boat just a few boatlenghts away. Someone says, "There's somebody standing on the prod." [?] Brad (I think) calls out to them: "Who's the monkey on the bowsprit?" We hear the response. Something like, "Go back to Kerikeri, mate", which makes Brad chuckle. [Brad and Blair Tuke are both from Kerikeri, NZ.] I think this must be the super-close approach they had with MAPFRE around 2018.01.10 08:20:10 UTC, so that would make it either Blair or Louis who's answering. Brad, invisible in the dark: "It's nice to talk to somebody from another boat for a change. As much as I love these guys, it's nice to hear a different voice for once. Especially one from Kerikeri." Awesome drone shot passing AkzoNobel at low altitude, flying toward MAPFRE. Lightning-flash illuminated shots of them sailing in the squall that night.Time-lapse of from cabin looking aft of sunset, night. Below in red light, Nick explains that a cloud headed them, but they don't want to give up their weather gauge so they're switching to the J0 to stay high. View of the nighttime sail change from the cabin area looking forward; stars visible ahead of them. Crew in the cockpit, foredeck work. Tony: "Nice one! That was awesome!" Later, Mark steers while SiFi sits next to him talking about it being a nice opportunity to get some experience with that sail. In the dark, Nick talks about how the peel went well. "Damn; it's a beautiful night." View up the mast of Taurus, with the Pleides and Hyades.Pascal, at the nav station, puts on a headset. He announces something we hear booming through a PA system. "20 minutes before the gybe. 20 minutes." Jack, waking up in his bunk. Carolijn and Black getting dressed. Marie getting dressed. Pascal over the PA: "Three minutes." Crew goes on deck, perfoms the gybe. Below, we see Marie climbing back into her bunk. Pascal, over the PA: "Okay; in about 20 minutes [?] another gybe." Time lapse shot of repeated gybes with short intervals between them.Time lapse, from the port stern, showing several hours (?) of Vestas sailing on port as dusk settles.Pascal talks in the cockpit. They're off Brazil, can't see the girls on the beach but they're there. Talks about going around the St. Helena high. Below, at the nav station, Pascal talks on the intercom about the latest sched. Time-lapse view from the media station looking forward of Pascal at the nav station. Shots of Dongfeng reaching fast on port. Jack working on a piece of hardward (roller fitting from the head of a sail, maybe?). Jérémie, on the pedestal, slaps the top of the winch drum while spray covers him, then grabs a winch handle to bang on it. Carolijn in the washing machine. Charles grinding on a pedestal.Time-lapse shot that circles the horizon at sunset.Time-lapse shot looking aft from the cabin at the cockpit as the sun comes up. It's actually pretty interesting to go through it frame by frame and see what people are doing. Most of the time it's Liz on the helm and Annalise (I think?) on the mainsheet. At one point Henry takes the wheel for a bit. Later Sam comes up, and apparently they figure out the time lapse has been running, because Henry points forward and Liz waves. Sam stands on the stern photographing the wake, the horizon to port.Uninterrupted stern cam shot of TTToP surfing at high speed toward the setting sun. At first the shot is sped up time-lapse style. Then it suddenly slows down and becomes slomo as spray comes over the boat, then continues at normal speed.
