I have not calculated anything!
Never paid that much attention the actual distance covered in a day.
I will work it out over the next few times out.
However Chris says 76 litres or so. If I run out its his fault really. :-) lol

Route, is sort of simple circumnavigate IoW clockwise approx 60nm, you can't take a shortcut, can you? Lol

Depends how fast you go up the river medina! :-)

allena 29 January 2014 13:19

would it be a little optimistic to assume that we are going clockwise at that time as tidal flow will be in our favour:hide:? I would hate to get my fuel calculations wrong

Failing that prob go to calshot and meet up with Chris moody.
If he doesn't mind :-)

I'll be leaving from Christchurch and will have plenty of fuel if there are problems.

At least 2 other ribs went from there last year, so there should be a few of us.
