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.
