Tacking out of Auckland harbor after the start. Bouwe is on the aft pedestal; Peter is on the helm. MAPFRE tacks ahead of the; they tack short. Then they converge on port with oncoming fleet on starboard: Scallywag, Vestas, TTToP, and then AkzoNobel still on port. Peter, steering from the leeaward wheel, calls: "A little dip here." We see them ducking Vestas and TTToP; MAPFRE and Dongfeng are visible ahead of them on port tack. Carlo calls the duck on the foredeck, then walks aft. Then we see Dongfeng crossing behind them under their A3 going downwind, then TTToP crossing behind them going upwind as Liz goes onto the foredeck. Carlo talks about how the start has been good. Then we see their jumper jump. Capey calling 5 minutes to the mark. Coiling lines in the pit. Bashing to weather on the foredeck.
