Re: Nautical miles per season

I'm up to 650 recorded nm so far this year. I think I've got another 50 unrecorded nm lurking about. I don't turn the GPS on for about 2% of my sails.

That's a season with "life getting in the way".
Now that my divorce is final, and my daughters are adults, I expect to pile on the miles next year.

Need to find someone to help look after my aging beagle though. You'd be surprised how much sailing I give up so that he doesn't sit alone in the house.

Re: Nautical miles per season

Rough calculations lead me to believe that I have covered some 250 miles this season. Not bad for a first-season noob!

I fully expect to double or triple that number next year.

Re: Nautical miles per season

I don't know what represents a "season", but if that stands for the standard three months, as there are four seasons to a year; then, we average about 600 miles per season. We usually take a break from cruising and spend time at the dock with family from Thanksgiving through Christmas, but the rest of the year we are poking about.

Re: Nautical miles per season

Both admiral and I are still working ( hope that will change soon). This was first season with new boat. She splashed in May at Norfolk Va and was sailed home. We also sailed back and forth from the Annapolis boat show. With that plus daysails/brief cruises up to ~2000nm on her in the last ~6m. May get a little more on her before she goes on the hard for more outfitting until the spring. What disappoints me is 100+ hours on the engine and too little time with it off. Think you should take time on the boat minus time with engine on as the true measure of enjoyment.

Re: Nautical miles per season

We did some of our furthest ranging cruising this past summer, and put on close to 800 nm (too many hours on engine, not a lot of wind and/or stiff current or tidal windows).

In 2006 we didn't go as far, but racked up over 1200 nm in shorter hops.. I'd say over the last 10 years we've been averaging 7-800 over the year, most of it between June and September. This is on our own boat, not including the occasional winter visit to friends in far places...

Re: Nautical miles per season

OK, I get it! A "season" is that time span when it's warm enough to go boating. This is confusing to those of us that remain in places where we can always be boating!
