Re: Nautical miles per season

We keep track of ours as well as post them in a log book.

The last 7 seasons before this we averaged 2800-3000 km a season

30 sailing weekends averaging 50 miles and a trip to The Long Island Sound/ New England and ports inbwteeen and tangentially 1300 miles.

This year we didnt make to our long trip as health difficults intervened, but we are still at alomost 1600 kn with about 1.5 months to go in our season.

Thats what makes me so quizical to what the definition of a "criuiser" is. We dont consider ourselves cruisers, but many one here who either live on their boats or sail many less miles per year do.

Our boat is our escape, second home, vacation castle and therapy.

I was banging 11 knots SOG on a broad reach during a race this spring on my Pearson 30. TWS was 32 kts. The knotmeter was pegged for much of the race. I was fairly stunned, thinking that was impossible.
Surfing does have its benefits.

a spinnaker is out of question on my boat sailing alone.
We didn't carry the spinnaker(I wanted to give it a shot but was over ruled)due to 45-50k winds and would have meant more gybes. We were first overall though.

The roar of the water rushing over the hull while I was down below taking a piss was impressive.

That's racing with a crew. I cruise and sail alone the boat, a spinnaker is out of question on my boat sailing alone. Too big.

On the other way, from Messina strait to Rome we only had a really decent sailing day, from Ponza to Rome (70Nm), but what a day, surfing at 11K with the waves directly on the transom

Re: Nautical miles per season

Have done about 2100nm so far this year with about 600nm on my own boat and the rest being on OPBs through racing.

I reckon about 1700nm last year all racing on OPBs.

Can't be bothered with counting years previous.

That has to do with the sailboat performance but mostly, like you say, with the wind or lack of it.

This year part of the season was on the Cyclades. We have been sailing there about a month in August. On that month I used about 60L of diesel sailing almost everyday between 20 and 60nm, maybe an average of 30Nm a day. I can only remember one time at a quay with electricity to charge the batteries so the Diesel went practically all for charging batteries.

I will recommend the Cyclades to all that want to sail and keep motoring to a minimum. Some experience is required because sometimes the wind is too much (4 days at anchor waiting it to blow away) and some smart navigation is needed to get away from stronger winds, but it is a delight to know that you will have wind to sail everyday and every night. I become a fan
