Now you know the distances in nautical miles, how long is it going to take to sail there? Below is a rough guide to mean speeds in nautical miles per hour for various boat lengths. These speeds are estimated for winds of 4 to 5 beaufort and wave heights of up to 1.5 meters and assume a comfortable cruising speed on a fully loaded boat. Speeds can be higher, depending on your sailing skills 🙂

Boat Length (in feet) Mean Speed NM/H Our Yachts
35,1 – 37,1 4,5 to 5 nm/h Mickey and Piccolo
40 – 41 5 to 5,5 nm/h Aina and Selene
46 – 48 6,5 to 7 nm/h Emmanouel and Nestor
50+ 7,5 to 8 nm/h Anna I, Anna II, Sapho and Kontiki
