July 16, 2011: With five miles to go, we hailed the race committee, who were standing by in the Lizard point lighthouse, waiting to mark our arrival across the finish line.

As the time passed, we practiced taking bearings from the bow so we could announce our arrival across the line per the race committee’... » read more25 posts (5151 words) 3 photos 20 comments
