The Race: Episode 8 - Phil's audio diary
Phil and Passepartout are reunited with Sophia and the adventure continues towards Papua New Guinea. But there are further troubles ahead involving a credit card and a lobster! You can hear a summary of what happens here.
If you don't want to know what happens, listen to the whole of episode 8 first on the next page.
We made it to Papua New Guinea. We had to buy some food and water for our journey but we didn't have any money. We had to sell some of our things to pay for our supplies.
We set sail across the Pacific Ocean. And I cooked a special lobster dinner but it made Passepartout and Sophia very sick. I had to sail the yacht by myself. I was trying to find somewhere to land but there was a storm and I nearly hit the rocks. I really want to go home!
You can download the audio and transcript from our Unit 8 downloads page.
Listen to the whole of episode 8 of The Race.
