Travel plan in Mediterranean Sea

3055 Views 12 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  chuck5499
Hi everybody, I'm organising a trip on a sail boat with few friends and I was wondering if anybody have experienced to cross the Mediterranean Sea from Greece/Italy/Croatia or so.... to Africa and back, how long it might take? And any other useful tips are welcomed..

Iv'e zigged and zagged across most of it.
As a rule say 120 nms per day.
Keep in mind this is going to be for a 24 hours, not a sun up to sun down. So you will need to have competent watch keepers. If you are doing this with non sailors and want to keep it to daylight hours 70 Nautical Miles would be pushing it hard. Also can depend on the boat, bigger boats should be able to cover a bit more, smaller less.
