nolatom If you motor all the way, figure on 5.

But why would you do that? Pick your weather, and you can make 5 under sail if reaching, then motorsail only when the wind gets light.

I don't know the area, but if you have time, split it into two, or even 3 days, depending on wind direction, forecast, and where the harbors are. You'll have more fun seeing places, and getting to know your new boat.

And enjoy that classic Bristol, a well-built Carl Alberg design that'll keep you safe, and can take you anywhere.

svHyLyte Considering that it is only 86 sea miles from the marina at Northerly Island on the south side to the entrance at McKinley Marina in downtown Milwaukee, you are not looking at a long trip, which, if you choose your weather right, can probably be done in reaching conditions. There are also public marinas in Kenosha and Racine where you can probably lay over if you don't want to run through the night. For weather on the Lake see PassageWeather - Sailing Weather - Marine Weather Forecasts for Sailors and Adventurers

FWIW...

tomandchris Where in Chicago are you starting. Lots of difference South Side to North Side marinas. I cannot imagine 2 10 hour days from anywhere in Chicago unless you were dead into the wind.

sailingdog Hull speed is about six knots, so I'd plan on four knots as your average cruising speed. That is a bit conservative, but should be good for planning purposes.

Moving boat Chicago to Milwaukee

I recently bought a Bristol 27 that I need to move from Chicago to Milwaukee. Previously I have only done daysailing. Just wondering what speed I should expect to get motoring. The B27 is 19.8' LWL, has a long keel, and an Atomic 4. It looks like a couple of 10 hour days.
