Step aboard Volvo Ocean Race Leg 8 leader, Team Brunel for a smorgasbord of experiences – including the crew giving their impressions of navigator Andrew Cape (AUS) who has 10 roundings of Cape Horn in his log book.

Then there is a drone flight around the boat and a look at what some of the neighbours are up to – sadly the crew had to turn down a barbeque invitation.

This is definitely an on-board video with a difference.
