Departure parade past sparse Melbourne crowd. They pull out to "Uptown Funk." Horace waves a Chinese flag. He talks about starting the leg on which his is going home. Says something in Chinese and makes a "Number One" gesture. Jack talks about how quickly the stopover went; only had a week in Melbourne. They talk with the jumper on the stern. Has an Aussie accent? Talks about meeting the team in person. A bit bigger than the 470 he's used to. Shot of them sailing upwind. Frank, ahead of Charles on the wheel, checks a tablet and talks to Charles in French. Footage of the start from onboard. Frank and Charles talking. Shot of them doing their 270 penalty turn (for a port-starboard infraction of AkzoNobel, per Dongfeng's website). Horace on the rail talks about the penalty. Tacking through the fleet.
