We have during our soon two years of passage
, found a need to make a detailed passage
plan consisting of several routes and days at anchor
and days in marinas
. The purpose of the passage plan is to make sure that we get to your destination
without getting into trouble with hurricanes, etc..
I have developed a spreadsheet for the purpose, but it will much more efficient if it is a part of OpenCPN
After making a route
it could be included into a passage plan and you can input how many days you plan to stay in that marina or anchorage. After each change the passage plan is recalculate and you will know when at the final destination
There should be an alarm
if you plan to sail a route when there is is a risk of hurricanes etc..
The passage plan should be updated with actual data after sailing a route.
