    Just to have the confidence to make this move is incredible! DF has shown confidence in sailing their own race this entire leg.

    DF rolling the dice? I hope they know something the rest don’t! It does look like ttop and Scally will follow.

    Not sure what to think about this matchrace between df and MAPFRE. Are they both just letting Brunel overtake them?

    Don’t forget Mr.Lee. He was driving pretty intensely.

    Gooooo Dong Feng! And fair winds to all the teams.

    VOR Leg 10 Cardiff to Gothenburg

    Did Dong get too close to land and now needs to back track?

    VOR Leg 9 Newport to Cardiff

    Due to this 12-15 hour delay, MAPFRE got stuck in really bad wind and it took them days longer to finish leg 7 than DF, who had much better wind.

    VOR Leg 8 Itajaí to Newport

    I happen to agree with SC that perhaps the race should end out in the ocean, but if it did, there is a very good chance that DF, who led coming into the exclusion zone, would have won it - not TBRU. For that reason alone, I don't think it's fair to say TBRU was robbed. I'm not saying DF was robbed either - all teams faced the same conditions at the end, and the playing field was even.

    Feel gutted for Dong Feng. I hope they enjoy some delicious Del’s frozen lemonade, with a healthy dose of rum of course.

    They cut their toothbrushes in half to save weight.

    Good question, Jack. It does not look - at least to me - like Brunel can cross DF if both boats keep the same angle.

    This is setting up for a really exciting finish. Wish I was up in Newport.
