I always like to total up the numbers at the end of the season, and this year is no exception, although the numbers are much higher! We spent 11 weeks living aboard Robinetta, and travelled 1245 nautical miles, taking 367 hours on passage.
We had decided we were not in a hurry, and would sail when we could, and stay in port if we could not, but we still ended up having the engine on for 276 hours. We would never have got to the Orkneys without using the engine on the trip up the east coast when the winds were too light for sailing, which they were for a lot of June. In the event we only stayed in harbour when the winds were too strong for safety (and not always then.....)
