Spirit of Ulysses Q&A #3

Q: Congratulations on the crossing Mike and crew. Wish to join the ranks one day.  What will be the total fuel burn for the entire trip, please?

Fair winds!


A: Thank you! I guess that depends on where you consider the trip starting and finishing. We filled up in Gibralter with 15,100 litres and headed down the Canaries where James and Doug joined us and are now headed down to Cape Verde where we will top up again before heading straight to the Barbados. We currently burn somewhere between 12 to 16 gallons an hour depending on sea state and what else we have running like generators, water makers etc. I’ll make sure to answer this one again when we get to Barbados.
