Re: How many Sea Miles did you Log in 2010 ?

Since I'm still sailing on other people's boats I almost got to 1000 but not quite. I usually count my sailing by time and not miles. I've got lots of hours in but not many miles. Would your survey be actual miles covered over the water or distance between ports?
kind regards,

2010: 1,500 total. Changed jobs.
2011: 2000 so far. Many more planned.

Capn Morgan and I enjoy watching the forests from nice anchorages.

This is my game. I love to stay on the move. As a solo coastal cruiser I do a lot of short hops.

Boat is in cradle for "refit" all of 2010-date. There isn't that much to do but when ashore it's the siren calls of money and romance that snare me. That and access to several other boats has kept me occupied but way under 1000 miles. I hope to move on before year's end. Not a big hurry as this is likely my last time ashore. I haven't been way down island in the Caribbe so trying to figure if I have the internal fortitude to head out to Bermuda and hang a right. I've had all the thorny path I need already.

Re: How Many Sea Miles Did You Log in 2010 ?

Thailand to the Caribbean. It was a big year. In straight lines about 12,000 miles but with the wiggles about 15,000.

This year has been less than 1,000 so far and as you can guess its my quiet year

Thanks to everyone who voted...

The only pattern(s) emerging from the data thus far:

1> When cruising, Wine is much more important than logging miles.



Cheers,
Neal

Between over-nighters in NC and the move down to FL, I logged around 1200nm.

Once out cruising full-time the 'pace of the race' will slow down for most of us I reckon. I am talking about folks on an open-ended cruise. Those who are on a schedule, even a RTW in 3to 5 years are more in a hurry.

Then on the other side of the range are a lot of cruisers (or maybe not?) who are stationary live-aboards. To each his own, some of us actually need to stop and make some money during a voyage....


What's wrong with wine, BTW? I for one LOVE it! red, full-bodied; Mmmm, yummy

Re: How Many Sea Miles Did You Log in 2010 ?

I didn't keep track, I sailed winter 09/10 and gunkholed all summer into the fall all of it around the Salish Sea. I voted between 1000 and 2000 and plus or minus a 1000 that's got to be it! I'd guess 1500. I started out storing my tracks on the plotter but on my trips around the gulf islands it gets pretty redundant. After a while the plotter itself doesn't seem neccessary!

This year I don't know. I haven't been out since December. The way things are lining up I might get in a 1000 nm. More would be nice.

Re: How Many Sea Miles Did You Log in 2010 ?

In 2010 we sailed from the BVI to New Zealand. A little more than 11,000 miles.
This year we will stay in Tonga and Fiji, so a much more relaxed season. More time for rum and wine.
