Shot looking forward from over Phil's shoulder as he drives. TJ, shirtless in the cockpit, points out the land to port, the Solomons (Ghupuna, off the east coast of Makira/San Cristobal). "And we've got Dee just above us, she's burned up all her gauge, working down. Akzo's just ahead of us, a couple of miles away, MAPFRE a couple of miles ahead of them, Dongfeng a couple of miles ahead of them." Talks about how close the boats are. Weird on-screen title appears, white letters on blue: "Analyzing in background (step 1 of 2)". Assume that's an editing glitch by Amory. We see the chart plotter screen below, which zooms in to show them rounding San Cristobal. Mark, at nav station, recounts the leg. Got off to a good start, fell back by playing the inside, but now they're back in touch with a couple of thousand miles to go. "Plenty of opportunity." Drone shots of Vestas sailing on starboard. Stacey, trimming, talks about being in touch with the others. "It feels like a long time, when you're right there and you can't pass them." On the foredeck, someone unzips a new sail. Camera zooms in to show AkzoNobel and MAPFRE ahead of them. Drone shot with San Cristobal in the background.
