Recently I analized our log book and this is what I discovered about last year:
Number of days of sailing: 86
This is more or less 25%, which means that we spent about a quarter of the last year on the water.
|Number of nights||Calypso||Jasna||Rick|
|– at anchor||283||(77%)||280||283|
|– on passage||50||(14%)||50||50|
|– in the boatyard||17||(5%)||0*||0*|
|– on a mooring||15||(4%)||32||32|
|– in a marina||0||(0%)||0||0|
|– on land||0||(0%)||3**||0|
* In January we hauled out for 17 days. The boatyard did not allowed us to live aboard Calypso, so we moved on Luci which was on a mooring. Thanks again Tim and Meredith!!!
** In March I went to San Diego (to visit some marine stores and get Calypso even lower on her waterline) and stayed with a friend for 3 days, that’s why only Rick has the record of NEVER SLEEPING ON LAND in 2014!
Number of nautical miles: 4696
Longest passage: 32 days (Mex – Poly)
Engine hours: 167 (about one third of that to come back to the Marquesas from Tahiti)
Used diesel: 270 liters – 70 gallons (we left Mexico with 77 gallons)
ISLANDS and ANCHORAGES
Number of islands: 10 (ONLY!?!?)
Number of different anchorages: 22
The majority (13) of this anchorages had no internet access and no shops. So in 2014 we spent 139 days – 38% of the time in places with no shops, banks, internet or post office.
Another interesting statistic is that we spent an average of 14 days in every anchorage. Sounds about right…
