Slomo shot of Bouwe steering. Below, Sam to Bouwe: Where's your head at right now? Bouwe: In some shelter from the land, made some good gains on Akzo. Sam asks a question about decision-making. Bouwe: We just decision based on where the two red boats are. Have to get past them in the next 36 hours. Sam: How hungry do you feel still? Bouwe: I could have a sandwich. Sam: In terms of winning this leg? Bouwe: Of course. We don't have to win the leg, as long as we beat the red boats that would be an ideal scenario... Reality right now is they're ahead of us... Yesterday we made one little mistake, where we gybed first of the group, gybed back and it worked out all right... Working hard and making gains on the boats ahead of us. Sam: Do you feel any pressure, from sponsors, fans, yourself... Bouwe: Only from my wife. Because she knows how badly I want to win this one as well. That's just a joke. There's no pressure as such. We all just sail 200%. When you sail this many races you know there's always going to be one winner; we just hope it's us.
