American Sally Barkow stands in for Abby Ehler at The Magenta Project for this episode live from Itajai in Brazil and just before the in-port race took place to talk to Australian Stacey Jackson from Vestas 11th Hour Racing and New Zealand’s Bianca Cook on Turn the Tide on Plastic. They share their experiences so far and what it was really like in the Southern Ocean on Leg 7.  Stacey explains how it’s now become a mental rather that physical challenge and what the last leg took out of the sailors. Bianca also talks about the last leg and how they also dealt with the challenge of technical problems that interrupted their racing.
