Blaire, below, explains that they're in the northeast trades, and are dueling with Dongfeng. AkzoNobel and Scallywag down to leeward. Hoping next transition works in their favor. Knew this race was going to have a lot of transitions and compressions. Guys who went a different route managed to get in front, but there's at least two more transitions to come. Dongfeng is very equal in pace. Slomo washing machine shots from the companionway, cockpit, stern. Rob on the helm taking spray. Tamara trimming.
