Thats a nice idea James - just needs a good set of scales.
Definitely liking the points for coming back with the most, I see three prizes in the offing.
Best time with the fuel allowed, (bronze)
Most economical run within the allowed time, (silver)
Best overall performance. (gold)
Having discussed this more locally it has been suggested that 16 Ltrs is enough for most boats to get around with a sensible combination of speeds.
It has also been suggested to decide the direction on the day so that boats can coast over the finish line if they conk out in the last mile.
