Hannah grinds. Hannah: "It's really good to be back. It's been pretty good few days, lots of gybing, not the most amoutn of sleep, but it's warm, good breeze, and can still see two boats, so, pretty good to be back racing. Was a bit nervous about how I would slot back in after such a long time off the boat... It's been good." We see a gybe of the A3 from port to starboard, filmed from the J3 tack. Mark, on the middle pedestal, describes where the boats are near them. Are three groups of boats: Dongfeng and AkzoNobel ahead, the three of them in the middle, and Brunel and Scallywag a little bit behind. Have been gybing, now going to be a bit of a drag race on starboard. Shot of TTToP to a mile away to starboard (upwind of them, abeam) and MAPFRE a few miles to leeward and slightly ahead.
