Brunel and a second boat (MAPFRE?) a mile or two away. Light winds. Nicolas explains that they are in a wind transition. Good news is they were able to catch up with Brunel, Dongfeng, and MAPFRE; only a couple of hundred meters away. Now fighting in very light wind. Grinding at night. Stacking below, talking about how bad they smell. Other boat a few hundred yards away with port running lights. Bernardo talks about being on a 2-on, 2-off watch schedule. Phosphorescent wake. Competitor running light close to them. Drone shot of sunrise. Bernardo, Nicolas shave in a handheld mirror. Crew sleepy. Another boat behind them. Nicolas takes a bucket bath on the stern. Francesca talks about the battle during the night. MAPFRE and Dongfeng 35 miles to the west; now they're hanging with Brunel. Pushed hard during the night. All a bit tired, but we want to push as hard as possible. Drone shot of them sailing wiht Brunel ahead and to leeward of them.
