Time actually moving????

If you are a sailor, here are some interesting numbers for you. The data includes everything between 15 April 2008 and today.
I checked and double checked these numbers. I have been tracking everything since 2008...I wish that I had started earlier.

If our cruising  pace around the world is typical, the boat is only moving (motoring/sailing) 6.6% of the time. Notably, regarding solar, I had solar charging capability 33% of the time. My total time at anchor (majority) or in a marina was 93% of the time.

I decided that the Med sailing, or lack of sailing, had probably impacted these numbers significantly. So I broke out the numbers into two sets: "The World before the Med" and "Arrival in the Med to Rabat."

Yes, the Med did impact the numbers! Two things about the Med skewed my numbers:
1.) It is virtually impossible to cruise year round because of the winters.
2.) There are no predictable trade winds.

  1. Bill started collecting this data about the time we transited the Panama Canal. So it includes our crossing of that huge South Pacific.
