Somme interesting in formations about the passage:
Transat time: 17 jours, 16 heures et 30 min.
Straight line distance: 2667 nm
Distance made: 2944 nm
Speed over the straight line: 6.28 kts
Speed over the course: 6.93 kts
Fuel consumption: 5 L
Water consumption: 130 L
It seems that the hydro-generator and the solar panels are enough to keep the batteries up. Even without solar panels and hidro-generator the 90L of fuel would be more than enough to recharge batteries.
They have only consumed half the water they had.
The two things put together mean that the boat has a large autonomy, more than enough for any crossing. The water seems to be the limit but they can join easily 100L of bottled water, if needed.
Almost 7K for 17 days in a row is very good for a cruising boat, for a 10m boat is truly outstanding.
This shows that these type of boats, that include the Pogo 10.50, have no problem in carrying the load needed for a Transat (if the sailors like a simple live).
I would say that this type and size of boat is good for two and a Pogo 12.50 would be able to carry a 4 crew across the pond with no problem.
This practical example is very en-lighting regarding a discussion we had some time back regarding the payload of this kind of boat and its ability to cruise extensively
