OBR James Blake

Shot of MAPFRE and Dongfeng closing. Nicolas talks about how far behind they were a day ago; now they have 8 knots of wind while TTToP is drifting. Bernardo talks about going asleep with them out of sight, and on top of the leaders, but then waking up and having the two trailing boats on their hip. They're fighting with each other; hopefully we can sail away and go for third place. Francesa takes a line off the clew of the MH0 while Bianca holds onto her. Dee talks about how it's a lot tighter than they expected. They tracked the boats in front down and got much closer, but then they got the breeze, and meanwhile the boats bdhind caught them. She'll be absolutely gutted if they don't get the result they deserve. Liz looking intense on the helm. Henry: We've been racing for three weeks, and we have a 100-mile race beween 5 boats. It's gonna be a big next 10 hours, and hopefully we can hold on and get on the podium... Two fastest boats in the fleet bearing down on us. Going to be an intense few hours.
