No Wind - Gone Fishing

07 July 2012 | Stavanger, Norway
Nevil. Calm, light overcast with a band of drizzle for a while, 20°C.
Start / Finish Time: 13:01 / 16:20
Daily distance: 10.3 NM
Crew: Nevil.

Arrived at the boat with the intention of sailing off somewhere and spending the night aboard but there was no wind to take me anywhere. Nevertheless it was very pleasant weather so I decided on a little motor trip around the islands to go fishing. I did put the mainsail up in the vain hope of catching a breeze but to no avail. Caught several mackerel and two saithe on a combination of lure and feathers.

Checked / recorded the boat speed against engine revs performance and later plotted the data and worked out the fuel consumption data too:

Optimal cruising point is about 2500 rpm.
