    100 Nmi per day...
    From: Aubrey O´Callaghan
    Date: 2001 Jul 11, 7:12 AM

    I have a Rival 38, and use the rule of thumb of 100 miles/day when
    planning; it invariably works out like that... certainly on passages
    from/to UK from Gibraltar and down the Med.
    
    On my transatlantic is was a bit more 2700 miles in 23 days.
    
    Aubrey.
