Today’s skipper blog is going to be a little different to the usual.

Here are the crews quotes of the day as we catch the pack:

Skipper: Fire in our bellies, ice in our minds

Phil- beware the wounded dragon

Lisa- it's not over until the fat lady sings

Anthony- Are you not entertained?

Donna- Solid leadership has brought this team together, success takes care of itself

Doeke - To be, or not to be? That is the question

Yadi - Ok, let’s wake up the dragon

Matt - If in doubt, pushdown

Jody - We're behind you

Viv - It's the best race, the team have shown tenacity and strength to get back to the pack

Nnamdi - Knock, knock, who's there? QINGDAO!

Frankie - You want war?

Emma - Energy and persistence conquers all

George - Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war

Lina - Come to my castle

Guy - I came, I sailed, I conquered

Michelle - Nah, I’m alright thanks

All the best,

The crew of Qingdao
