March 6, 2014: Sleigh Ride!

Under sail since 0300 PST last night, double-reef main double reef stays’l. Totally awesome sailing NW winds 20-25 kts. We’re closing in on Point Conception and ticking away the miles at an amazing rate! Monitor wind vane 100% helm duty, working solid. Making our way around the NE side of the high pressure and found ourselves in the right place at the right time! Sailed in close to Big Sur this afternoon and got a good look at the mountains. NW winds forecast all next week. Crew and Privateer doing very well–this is sailing at it’s finest!
