The Race: Episode 3 - Phil's audio diary

The challenge has begun and already Phil and his sidekick Passepartout have run into trouble. Their yacht is leaking – will they get to dry land to get it fixed before they sink?

You can hear a summary of what happens here but if you don't want to know what happens, listen to the whole of episode 3 first on the next page.

Dear Diary, we got to the Cape Verde islands and we didn't sink. Our boat was fixed and we headed out into the Atlantic Ocean. What a big place it is!

We heard a storm warning on the radio and had to change direction towards Sao Tome. The waves were very big and we almost hit the rocks but a woman on the rocks helped us get into the harbour. Her name was Sophia; she was from the UK and she had a very sad story to tell us. 

We said we would take her home with us if she helped out on the yacht. Luckily, she's a good sailor. We ate bobofrito and drank delicious hot chocolate. Our trip is getting very exciting.
