Ben, below, says the breeze has built to 18 knots. Just peeled to the J0, and are trying to chase down the fleet. Ben: Hopefully they're in less breeze than we are now, so regain some miles back and hopefully rejoin the fleet. Slomo grinding. Libby: We're averaging 20 knots, so in theory we're gaining quite a lot. Leaders coming into the lee of Ireland, so we're gaining back. But last sched we lost another 50 miles, so we're 104 miles behind, which is quite a lot to be in less than 24 hours. Wouldn't have thought that was necessarily possible. Cockpit shots. Libby: Hopefully by the top of Scotland we'll be 20 miles behind. And then anything can happen in theory. Slomo of Alex in the pit. Libby: Have to keep doing all those things to try to gain.
