Liz, at the masthead, waves to the drone. (On Twitter I wrote that I was interpreting this as a Wisdom dream sequence. "Look Liz! I'm flying! I'm really flying!")Drone shots of TTToP sailing under MH0 and J3 in light winds. GoPro shot of Liz going to the masthead. At the masthead she holds Wisdom and voices him: "Hi everybody! Volvo... Ocean.. Race... 'm going flying, watch me! They're fixing a sail down there. Look, ther'es another bird. Hi! I'm going back in Liz's pocket now. It's scary up here." Back on deck, Wisdom talks about wanting to really fly. Dolphins under the bowsprit. Jérémie takes video of Liz taking a picture with her phone. On the foredeck, Bianca (?) works on repairing a sail. Martin and Frederico also repairing the sail. Frederico: "On my Finn boat it's just put some duct tape and that's it." Lucas paces in the cockpit. "Long way to Melbourne like this, I'll tell you that. Seven knots. We might be there by NEXT Christmas if we're lucky.... No matter how sloe we go, Christmas keeps getting closer." Nicolas talks about high pressure costing them access to the wind, could be 8 days to Melbourne.Liz is steering as TTToP sails on port gybe with full main in 15 knots of wind. Francesca trims the main. Bianca carries her gear to the stern where she gets dressed (maybe she was using it as a bathroom too?) Liz talks about how they're not THAT isolated, because they have the fleet around them. Also there are a lot of islands in this part of the Southern Ocean, so there is shipping and fishing boats. "It's the next part of the Southern Ocean where you feel really isolated." Frederico talks about isolation not crossing his mind much; too busy sailing the boat. In the companionway, Bleddyn brushes his teeth. Cabin shot of the crew on the stern, Elodie, trimming, calls "Main on." Wisdom tucked into the pit coaming. Below, Bleddyn (?) gets dressed. Slomo closeup of Bianca bundled up on deck. Slomo closeups of Nicolas, Francesca (who laughs), Dee, Lucas, Martin. Drone shot from close to the port quarter as TTToP triple-heads on port gybe. More cool drone shots with low sun behind them. Interesting that I think Jérémie managed to get everyone in the crew (other than himself) in this video.Dockout. Simon crouches on the rail, saying goodbye to a young boy holding a Wisdom plushie; behind a younger child with a pacifier is held by a woman. Simon: "Be good!" As Vestas pulls away from the dock they all wave to each other. Below as they motor out to the start, Simon has put on his foulies and talks to Sam about the crew, how they combine youth, experience, lots of races, people in for the first time. "For the next leg the experience is good." Threading the line between sailing fast and breaking the boat. Sam: "Do you get nervous before these legs?" (I bet Sam is nervous.) Simon: "The hanging around the dock's the most stressful part for me. Saying goodbye to the family. But once you're out here there's not much time for nerves to be honest." In the cockpit as they sail before the start under main, Stacey talks about how yeah, a little nervous, going into the Southern Ocean with the forecast. Tony says it's his tenth time going down there. Shot of just after the start as the fleet sails on starboard tack. On the foredeck, Nick wrestles with a furled sail; it appears to be hung up in the rig above him. Nick, to the back of the boat: "Keep easing!... Are you easing?" He struggles to free the sail. Nick (under his breath): "Fuck it." To the cockpit: "Somebody come up and help me." Tom runs forward to help pull on the sail. Sam is right in the action as they wrestle with the sail. Nick: "Okay! It's good! Start hoisting!" Shot of Scallywag right on their stern, diving below them, TTToP and AkzoNobel further to leeward. Chuny is steering. Scallywag comes in beneath them. Shouting back and forth between the boats. Sam is RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ACTION, leaning out to leeward, practically touching Scallywag. We see the OBR on Scallywag (Konrad Frost) filming Sam as Sam films him. Protests. Shouts from Vestas about the overtaking leeward vessel not having rights to luff above proper course. Later, they sail in less wind, the shore visible to port. TTToP and Scallywag are visible to leeward. Chuny, on the helm, appears to still be talking about the Scallywag incident. Chuny: "I saw him (gestures) luffing against US." Slomo shot of crew reefing the main. Sam: "Hey, Chuny. What happened at the start with Scallywag?" Chuny explains the rule, that Scallywag came in from behind and started luffing, and how it's not safe, it could have broken both boats, at the start of a leg like this. "I was angry... Because it's not safe." We see them putting in a second reef. Charlie, on the aft pedestal, grinding and talking to Sam. Subtitles (added by Sam), because he's barely understandable. "Ah you know everyone puts a lot of stock in the start. But it's kind of more how you finish."Scallywag crew walks through the crowd during the dockout ceremony. Slomo of Fish hugging a young man/boy (son?) across the lifelines. Someone (António?) says goodbye to a toddler (son?) behind held by a woman. The boy holds a Wisdom plushie, inadvertently bopping the woman holding him (mom?) in the nose. Parko side-hugs a girl (daughter?). Witty at the helm takes them out from the dock with crowds visible behind them. Motoring out, Witty talks about double points on this leg. "We Scallywags need a podium on this leg into Melbourne, which would be nice." Talks about the wind on this leg. Standing by the mast as they motor out, Alex talks about being a bit nervous. It's his first Southern Ocean leg. "The race doesn't start here. It starts tonight." Parko, in the pit: "This is an important two miles out of 6,000. So it's just about sailing smart." We see the start, with all the other boats to leeward of them. Close action. Ben, on the bow, moving a sail.Wake. There's a bird visible; doesn't look big enough for an albatross. Liz looks out and comments (I think) on the cold. Below, Nicolas talks about wanting to finish the race quickly and see his new daughter. mast cam view looking down. Below, Henry mixes a food packet. Henry: "Just making the mac and cheese, mate; just coming off watch." Sam: "So what's the rundown?" Henry explains they're getting east as fast as possible, trying to stay with the front, after which Dee and Nicolas will need to decide whether to go north or south. Nicolas, at the nav station, says he needs a coin to decide. Dee, in her bunk, jokes: "It's a big week for Nico, coming into Cape Town." Henry explains that Nico was on MAPFRE in the last edition of the race as they finished in Cape Town, when SCA overtook them when they became becalmed and they came in last for the leg. On the stern, Liz points out an albatross. Liz: "There's the real Wisdom! Pretty cool."In the cockpit, Wisdom (voiced by Liz) talks about the competition. Wisdom: "Nico told me that Scallywag's only two and a half miles over there, and Akzonobel's only 42 miles away over there. I'm gonna go have a fly and check them out." We then see a very high drone shot looking at Scallywag, which then zooms out to show TTToP far below. Wisdom (Liz) in voiceover: "I'm really really high right now. Can you see Scallywag? They're 2.5 miles away. And look at our boat. That's my boat, Turn the Tide on Plastic. And the other boats, they're over 50 miles away. They're over the curve of the earth, so we're gonna have to sail really fast to catch them."Pretty low-altitude drone shot of TTToP sailing at sunset on port gybe. Drone moves in toward bowsprit, where a sailor is standing. Below, at the nav station, Liz, Dee, and Nicolas are looking at the computer. Liz plays with Wisdom. Dee explains that they've just received a position report and they are the furthest-west boat. She says they're discussing doing stealth mode. "I think we're gonna go for it." Liz has Wisdom explain (or explains to Wisdom; not completely sure) what stealth mode is. On deck, Lucas: "You watch. We're gonna come out of this, bang! Like a ninja!" Bianca covers her face with her hands, then flaps them open. "Stealth mode!" Martin: "Now you see us, now you don't." Wide, high drone shot circling TTToP in the evening with clouds.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.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!"
