Kyle, in the hatch: We've just rounded the north of Scotland. We've got Dongfeng a mile under our bow here. Turn the Tide and Akzo just behind us, MAPFRE about 10 [?] miles in front of us. Waiting for the breeze to build. It's natural when you have good moments, bad moments, that the mood's kind of up and down, and obviously we're up at the moment. We've had a pretty good 6-8 hours, and managed to work our way through the fleet, so we're almost to the front. Sam: You guys still see a chance of winning this thing? Kyle: Like we've seen in every leg, it's not over till you cross the finish line. And we were on the bad end of that in Newport, where we lost the lead with 30 seconds to go. Need to keep a positive attitude. Sam: Any chance of a park up at the finish? Kyle: Looks pretty straightforward all the way from here to the finish. Breeze is gonna build. In the high-speed reaching and downwind, we know that that's our strength; saw that in the Southern Ocean and in the trans-Atlantic.
