I haven't done this before so I would be well up for it.

Let me know closer to the time I may launch with you at Southampton.

No worries, you are very welcome

We will be having a chat about this at the Nacho Run Cruise on the 8th January if you are around for that?

Depends which way round the trip ends up being. If clockwise, an RV by the forts for any Pompey folks would probably work (or time dependant possibly inside Portsmouth harbour where the Lightship is/was). If anti-clockwise, an RV with the Southampton lot at Calshot spit or off Cowes would work, to then meet any Lymington lot on the way round.

My Yamaha 50 did a little over a litre per mile, only you can see how much you use through experience, how you drive and trim will make a huge difference.

Do I remember that you said that you had done an Intermediate powerboat course as this should have been one of the key areas covered under Passage planning.

You need to calculate the fuel burn for your rig with the loading you expect on the day - then get the charts out and work out your projected total distance to travel and then using your realistic fuel burn figure and the passage distance - calculate the amount of fuel required and then add at least 1/3 more in case of rough weather or the unexpected.

Running out of fuel is the most common cause of call-outs to leisure boat

What he says is, of course, quite correct and I was only 500m short of Yarmouth .... It could have been 500M for all the difference.

Fill up before you leave Lymington on the Nacho Run and either fill up in Yarmouth (cheaper) or in Lymington on your return (more expensive but better average) to find out Mpl (nautical miles per litre) for the boat.

If you do the R the I, I'll bring my 30l and jiggle tube (and I might put some fuel in the 30l as well! )
