  1. I'd like to say a big thanks to all the media crew who put these docs together, as well as the in port races and the leg starts. It is excellent stuff, so nice to watch top level sailing for an hour or more with great shots and knowledgeable commentators, and you get these three every leg! It has been brilliant.
