To be fair, re waiting, we normally end up cruising in groups of similar sizes, but when weather turns nasty a 7m just can't cruise with a 4m, he'd be at displacement speed and use all his fuel.

People should be self sufficient, that is the rule, fog can split eveyone up for example.

However the safest way is to buddy up with a similar boat!!

I wasn't complaining! Just concurring with m'colleague. Totally agree about self sufficiency, which is why we turned back last year. I took the decision that we weren't enjoying it, couldn't keep up, I wasn't confident going round on my own. This year we have a few hundred nautical under our belts so it's a diff kettle of ball games. (though I may still wuss out if I'm not enjoying myself).

Most use 1-1.5l per mile. More for bigger boat/engine and 2s vs 4s.
