Lucas, below: It's about setting goals, and you often have to readjust depending on where you are. To keep the morale up you set goals that you think you can achieve, and you keep chipping away at some bigger goals. We've set targest for each leg, and that's how you get better. Peel on deck. Frederico: Big challenge to manage your emotions while racing so many days in a row, so intensive. So many highs and lows. The very good sailors in this sport keep themselves stable. I struggle a lot; sometimes frustrated when things not going well. Shots of Frederico looking frustrated. Frederico: So yeah, something I've been working on. But the team always has the spirit to look forward, so that helps. Always improving, having fun. Francesca smiles in magic-hour light. Francesca: I'm a really competititve sailor. Short races, Olympic sailing, always to win. This race was different; knew from the beginning we had less experience. At the same time we have ability to sail fast, and have a good finish. Now is the time to show what we've learned and push as much as possible. Liz: Only reason we do this race is because we want to win... We're not going to win; we know that now. We can only do our best, nad we're doing our best against the best. Bianca: I feel really proud, proud of myself, and of our team. We've just sailed around the world in the Volvo Ocean Race. That's not something everybody does. We've proved that a mixed team can compete in this race at a high level. So yeah, I'm super proud.
