June 30, 2014 Record-Breaker!

Made record distance on our noon-to-noon today: 174 NM!  Held a 7 1/4 knot average for 24 hours.  Often, we surfed down wave faces at 10-11 kts.  Had wind & seas on the beam, 18-22 kts, keeping dry under the dodger!  1st reef in main, staysail, “2nd reef” yankee.  We are screaming toward Vava’u, Tonga.  Flying fish thumping into the sails.  Didn’t need to adjust sails or Monitor the whole day today.  “Privateer” is out here doing what she does best!
