Season 2010 - the numbers
I don’t know whether anyone is interested, but here they are…
The season: 238 days (8 months) since leaving Valencia
Countries visited: 6 (Spain, Italy, Tunisia, Malta, Greece & Turkey)
Islands visited: 37
Nights: 3 at sea, 93 on town quays, 63 at anchor, 6 moored, 163 on a pontoon/marina
Free nights: 50% - mostly in Greece. Cost of mooring about £1,700, half of which as en route to Greece.
Nautical miles travelled: 3,470
Time spent travelling: 650hrs. The engine was running for 60% of this, often to assist the sails in light airs (about 1,000 litres of fuel used).
Strongest winds: 47kts, a gust off the tip of Antipalaia. We also had 46kts during the crossing from Menorca to Sardinia.
Fastest boat speed: 8.8kts running downwind in F7 gusting 8 to Marmaris. Exciting!
