Amazing run today

We had an amazing run through the stream today double head sail reaching with speeds often exceeding 10 knots. Then we pulled out the asym after the wind dropped off a bit and rode some killer swell all afternoon. Fantastic run.
The wind eventually died late this afternoon and the forecasted northeasterly just filled in. We've got a good line to the finish and hope to get a hundred miles out this blow before we run out of it tomorrow morning. Unfortunately it looks like another lull will be waiting for us by then.
Fitzgerald once wrote "There are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy, and the tired" but right now I feel like all four.
