nah! then it would be doing about 25 miles a day with a much more erratic course instead of 50-70 miles a day.

2.5-3 knots is about what i would expect from a cat drifting downwind in 20-25 knot winds.

steering appears to be good as the course is not erratic.

direction wise, since the wind is on the aft quarter would indicate that they have some sailing ability,or motoring very slowly to be not pushed north.

Re: Atlantic Delivery

When I started passage making, there was little contact with the outside world during the passage. People just had to wait for us to make landfall to hear from us. This whole huge thread is amazing, in the sense that we can to some extent follow Boatie's progress. He'll probably fill us in about the delivery after he's finished it and after he sees this!

Smooth sailing, Boatie!

How can you tell he is moving at 3kts? I've looked at the Spot tracking and I do not see that information. Are you calculating it using the long/lat and time of the position v. the long/lat and time of the prior position?

Re: Atlantic Delivery

yes Flamingo, I put the coords in opencpn, measured the distance between and calculated the speed. Average last 12 hrs was about 3 knots, average last hour 3 knots as well...

Re: Atlantic Delivery

I thought there might have been something on Spot that did the work for you (because math is hard) - in any event, I calculated that between 1:43 and 2:12 he had traveled 2.724km - or 1.6926 miles over the course of 29 minutes. That resulted in a speed of 3.5mph or 3.0kts.

That matches what monte was stating.
