## How to calculate boat travel time by minuntes?

17 (nautical miles) / 20 (kts) = 0.85 hours Based on the equation, it will take you.85 hours to get to the island party. Below is the equation to convert this number into minutes..85 x 60 (minuntes in 1 hour) = 50 minutes

**How long will it take a powerful yacht to travel 500 miles?**

So how fast are you planning to go in your powerful yacht. If you can cruise at 20 mph, it will take you five hours to go every one hundred miles. So 500 miles would take 25 hours. Big boats will go as fast as you want, but speed cost money, big time. I had a small 44 ft yacht that would do 20 mph.

### How many miles does a boat sail in real life?

The total distance of this journey on a map is about 6,800km. A boat rarely sails in a straight line. It most likely will cover more distance due to a curved or S-shaped journey. A good rule of thumb is to add 15-20% on top of the theoretical distance. In real life, you’ll travel about 8,000km.

**How many days does it take to sail around the world?**

It most likely will cover more distance due to a curved or S-shaped journey. A good rule of thumb is to add 15-20% on top of the theoretical distance. In real life, you’ll travel about 8,000km. This comes down to about 20 days of sailing in good weather. Please note that sailers prefer to speak of distance (nautical miles), rather than time.

#### How many nautical miles can a sailboat sail?

5 knots equal to 5 nautical miles per hour. If you sail for 24 hours, that means you cover roughly 120 NM and if you use the tides and sail for 8 hours, you cover roughly 40 NM. The average mid-sized sailboat (32′ – 48′) cruises at roughly 6 knots.

**How long does it take to sail 100 miles?**

You figure you’ll be traveling at a speed of 8 miles an hour. And with the traditional D = S x T formula, you can calculate how long it takes to sail 100 miles. Here are all of the variations of this equation.

17 (nautical miles) / 20 (kts) = 0.85 hours Based on the equation, it will take you.85 hours to get to the island party. Below is the equation to convert this number into minutes..85 x 60 (minuntes in 1 hour) = 50 minutes

## What’s the average speed of a sailboat?

On average, the following hull lengths cruise at roughly the following speeds: 1 24′ – 5 knots 2 32′ – 5.5 knots 3 40′ – 6.5 knots 4 48′ – 7 knots 5 54′ – 7.5 knots More
