Aphrodite continues to plug away toward the Lizard under her trysail in 20 kts true wind on a reach moving along at 6 knots.  We are trying to track a thin line of wind and avoid a developing high/no wind situation to the east.  We will see how that works out.  We are 339 miles from the Lizard and depending on the wind conditions, looking to finish on Thursday then head to Cowes.  Not sure if we will do the coastal race and much depends on the winds.

I have got to confess that after racing 2800 miles across the Atlantic, contemplating a post-finish race from the Lizard (who comes up with these names?!) to Cowes is the very definition of anti-climatic. But here we are, gluttons for sailing.
