Drone shots of Scallywag triple-heading with the sun behind them on port, then on starboard. Annemieke, on deck, explains that they did a few gybes to stay in pressure. Says their gybes are getting better, sailing with 9 crewmembers. "It's way easier for us now than in the previous leg." More drone shots. Trystan, on deck, talks about getting into the swing of things, stacking and gybing. Shot of the foredeck. Witty: A thousand miles to the doldrums, set up on this lane, just off the Queensland border, looking forward to dim sum. "Very much looking forward to getting out of the position we're in at the moment..." He talks about how much easier it is with 9 crew. "I'm quite happy to be one of those people who puts his hand up to say I was completely wrong about sailing with less numbers... We're going to sail with maximum crew for the rest." Talks about having made a few more changes than he wanted, but that was due to the grueling previous leg. Hopes the new guys work out. Cool low-altitude drone shot tracking behind Scallywag as they sail on starboard in 12 knots of wind.
