We left Crescent City Sept 23rd at 09:20 PDT and arrived at San Francisco Sept 25th at 11:30 PDT, passing the lighthouse and Golden Gate Bridge pictured above.
The trip was great with all winds from the NW or NNW, except for a very brief period of light wind from the SW. Winds did not exceed 15 knts. Seas were primarily from the NW, decreasing as we went and never exceeding 10 ft at 9 seconds. There was no fog and we enjoyed sun during the day and near full moonlight for most of the night. For this section of the trip this is as good as it gets, particularly for Cape Mandocino and Point Arena. Both have well deserved reputations for rough conditions.
We discovered leaks in two of our stove elements just prior to leaving Crescent City, so were on cold rations. This was the only negative on this leg of the trip.
