ICW - CT to Corpus Christi

I suspect you salty dogs detest these grandiose newbie posts, but I'm looking long-term so here goes............

I'm looking for a rough estimate/s for sailing from CT to Corpus Christi via the ICW and sailing outside at stretches. Putting in each afternoon/evening at a marina or mooring. No more than 1 night per stop.

Objective is to complete journey is shortest time possible singlehanded with no more than 8 hours sailing per day and no more than 1 night per stop.

What is a rough estimate for fuel costs (total) and slip fees per night for a 30" sailboat?

Additionally, a rough estimate for CT to Miami, ICW and sailing outside.

Thanks,

Shane

ICW - CT to Corpus

I'm still on active-duty with the Air Force and I'm wondering if this can be done in 30 days.

It also gives me a baseline where I can add additional stops/days in port, and changes to come up with a realistic amount of time to do this.

Thanks,

Shane

Boat: Which one?
Posts: 50
I'm considering sailing from the Gulf of Mexico around the keys and up the east coast on my time off (when I get a boat and figure out how to sail it.). I only get ten days at a time. I was thinking to find a place to slip the boat when I go to work and returning the next month and continue.

When I finish touring the land.

It sounds like your determined to go all the way but consider the alternatives.

Have fun and good trip with the boat.


I'm sorry but I have no idea how long it could take or how much it would cost.

Actually I was hoping fuel was gonna be next to nothing, and I was planning to anchor out if I'm on the boat for free.

I'm sure I have a lot to learn about it.

8 hours per day at about 6 knots = 48 miles per day X 30 days = 1440 miles. Your total trip is somewhere around 3000+ miles give or take. Sooooo? that is with out weather delays, breakdowns or whatever and going every day.
