Nick on deck: Another day off the top of God knows where in the moon. And it's windy. And beautiful! Home stretch, heading to Gothenburg right now. Getting back into these conditions where it's tighter angles with higher windspeeds that we know and love, dont' have memories of Falklands. Yeah, it's beautiful out. [He sounds sleep-deprived.] Tony talking in the cockpit. Islands to starboard. SiFi in the hatch: You see the headland, or? Charlie: Top of Scotland, Shetland Islands. Breeze should build as we get around the headland here, switch to a stronger sail. We think we're strong in these conditions, good tactics at the end of legs, so we'll see what happens. TJ on the helm: Never been this far north. Cold, windy, raining. Flat water. Actually quite nice sailign right now. Nice to move up the leaderboard. But we'll catch 'em. SiFi: Lovely: Might come here for my summer holidays. They do a maneuver. Charlie: Bear away, furl, then pull the 2 out. We see them do that. Folding the J0. Stacking. SiFi: Almost 4 knots of current at the moment. That's a good thing. Someone's keen to put us in the North Sea.
