What is your Aficat 420:
3.Cruising speed and L/hr
4.Top speed and L/hr
and have you tried to harness the wind
on a run or reach...with maybe a parachute ?
Further to my previous post , we can " cruise
" at idling speed ( 900 rpm
) and this will give us 7.4 knots SOG with a total fuel
burn of 8 l/h , @ 1200 rpm
he SOG goes up to 8.5 knots with a total fuel
burn of 10 l/h so with 2,400 litres of diesel
this gives us a " reasonable " autonomy , we also have two turtle fuel bladders of 450 litres each if we want to increase our range .
