Night shot with red instrument lights. Annalise says they're going to hold on hoisting it because there's only 7 knots [of wind] at the moment. Dee, below, talks about the difficult night. Light wind and lots of sail changes. Felt like they spent all night in the rain. So most of the team was up most of the night. Now they have the J0 and a staysail, so it's a forgiving setup. Just hope that some of those behind them had the cloud issues too. Spreader cam view during the day of the foredeck, the stern. Dee: People are tired, but you get an extra buzz when you're at the front. But it's hard when you're getting hunted all the time. We'll get another position report in an hour. Shots of people sleeping in their bunks. Drone shot of TTToP sailing silhouetted against the sun. Dee comes on deck: We have redeemed ourselves! (Crew cheers.) 50 miles to MAPFRE. Martin can't believe it. Dee: Dongfeng lost a lot in that sched... Vestas is on our tail just to leeward. "We're the leaders of the pack." Annalise: I think I'll take that. Fastest boat in the fleet for no sleep. Lucas talks about it being worth it. Drone shot.
