Good luck, I wish you a great trip. Take your time to get a correct weather window. During your journey if you see a bag floating around with some fishing stuff in it please grab it and keep it onboard, I lost it during a fishing trip in France last September!
Joke appart, what you are about to do is my dream so take care and enjoy!
Cheers!

Lou

Thanks Mike, I found him. We'll have to keep an eye on him in case he starts going in circles like he did on his way to Ireland.

As always, following along Richard. Not sure which one I'd like to have most: Your guts or your boat.

Looks like Richard is on El Hierro in a well protected harbor. Don't have to worry about him tonight.

Yes, safe trip indeed. Just out of interest how much is it to take Dauntless through the Panama canal, I have a friend thinking of doing it early next year & we were chatting about it last weekend at the pub.

Sweeeet!!!

I did a little checking: From Hierra to BVI is about 2600nm. At 6kts that is 433hrs, or 18days. At 2gph, 870gal.

Nowhere to stop half way through, right?

Will he cross directly from Canari Island? Isn't it a shorter atlantic cross to go down to Cape Verde than cross from there to barbados?

Yes, his pan is to cross directly from the Canaries. I asked him about this and he said this is what he wants to do. He has the fuel to make it with some cushion. As far as the tankage I believe he has 700 gallons but I will ask to make sure. He has been running at 4 NM per gallon.

Looks very tight to me. From what Imsee on the map Hierro to Barbados is around 2850 nautics, and at 4n/g this gives somethings like 712 gallons.
Anyway I don't know how I can dare commenting on this, he knows better than me what he is doing

Sea Life formerly Searcher did this trip in the early '90s with no additional fuel and the same tankage. So definitely possible. I would have to find the account by the original owner to know the details though. If needed he can lose a knot or so and the range increases exponentially.

Side note: she had no stabilization, I added it for this trip!

Stabilizing definitely kills some fuel mileage though. He should be able to control the angle of the birds for a less aggressive dive, yielding better milage also if needed. I think he has the same birds I do.
