5.8 litres per mile! That makes yours look positively frugal.

Amazingly our new boat with twin Yanmar 260's uses slightly more fuel but at WOT - 108 litres per hour, but we should be doing 70mph at that fuel consumption bringing our mileage down to 1.54 Litres per mile!

Of course reducing speed also reduces consumption so at a cruising speed of 40 - 50 mph we should be very economical!

I read an article in one of the most important Italian boating magazines: IL GOMMONE ( www.ilgommone.net )
The article contains a description of the raid but also photos of very famous people around the world...
