How long would it take to sail from Mazatlan to Seattle in a 40' gaff ketch?

Approx. 465 Days

Whew, 465 days would be quite a sailing trip. Considering the fact that the point to point distance is around 1800 nautical miles, and assuming you could average 7 kts in your 40' ketch, the non-stop time (not considering winds, currents, port calls, lay days, etc.) should be somewhere around 10 plus days. The biennial Transpac race from Los Angeles to Honolulu is close to 2300 nautical miles and the boats in that race take anywhere from 7 days to 3 weeks to finish. Have fun.

I like the above answer for ideal conditions. However I would put you into Seattle port in around 3 weeks. That is accounting for poor conditions and stopping for any fuel and supplies. Also, spend a day or two to relax in Bahia Tortuga; the locals there cater to cruisers.

What is the water distance between New York and California?

Well, considering that there are only two primary water-routes, your answer will vary. The fastest route ships often take is through the Panama Canal. However, they will often stop at various ports of call enroute. This cruise will take about 12-13 days, depending on the length of time spent in port. Alternatively, ships can go completely around South America which will add another 8-10 days to the trek, again depending on ports of call. Bon Voyage!

Kayaking

How long will it take to kayak on a river 23 miles downstream?

The length of time it will take you to kayak 23 miles depends on two factors: 1) The speed at which you paddle. 2) The speed of the current. Depending on your fitness level and the type and length of kayak you are paddling, you may average from 1 to 3.5 miles per hour paddling speed. However, I would not estimate more than 3 mph over that distance. that assumes a fairly long boat and mostly continuous paddling. The speed of a river's current can vary widely from river to river, season to season, and place to place. A slow river may only go 1/4 to 1/2 miles per hour. A moderately fast one may run 4 MPH or more. A narrow river with many rapids may run even faster. Once you determine how fast you will paddle and how fast the river is running, you can calculate the duration for your paddle. If you paddle slowly at 1 mph and the river is a lazy one it could take you 20 hours or more. If you paddle vigorously and you're in a moderately fast river your journey may take less than 4 hours.

What is the best sailing route across the Atlantic ocean west to east in July?

As a veteran of one east to west crossing via the trade winds, the best west to east routes are to the north, US - Bermuda - Azores - Europe. You have the benefit of the westerly winds and the Atlantic high. July is late to leave for a west to east crossing, the risk of hurricanes is increasing.

How long does it take to sail from California to Australia?

If you are talking about a SALIING vessel that is powered by the wind, it is impossible to say. The winds are variable, not predictable.

If you are taking the Trade Wind route it's pretty safe and it could take as little as 2 months.

How long would it take to sail from Florida from Jamaica?

Most major cruise lines don't cruise directly from Florida to Jamaica for logistics reasons... There's usually a stop before that. The cruise however (direct) from Miami to Ocho Rios would take approximately two days at sea (hence the stop at an on-the-way port like Roatan). Happy cruising!

How long does it take a boat to go from the US to Britain?

The westerly winds make this somewhat faster than from the UK to the US.

It depends on the type of boat or ship. The ancient sailing ships took between three weeks and three months depending on the prevailing winds, and a lower range of about two weeks would apply to sailboats using the most direct routes.

In the 19th century, steamships cut the time to less than two weeks. Modern cruise ships, cargo ships, tankers, and container ships can transit the Atlantic in as little as 6 or 7 days, averaging 20 to 25 knots. But slower ships can still take 2 or 3 weeks to reach various destinations in Europe.

How long would it take to sail from Galveston Texas around South America and back to Galveston in a 27 foot long Catalina sail boat?

Sailed a Valiant 32 for many years, would think you might need to make it two stage trip if you go all the way to CA. Another plan if you are mainly interested in rounding the Horn - you might go through the Beagle Channel and round the Horn from the West and back to TX. Unless you layover somewhere you might have to sail during part of the hurricane season. Stop at Rio Dulce and wait would not be a bad plan I don't think. It is a lovely place to spend some time. Any case it would be a great adventure -- go for it.. olegunny

Timing is everything in life. In sailing, I can give you my personal experience in sailing from Corpus Christi, TX to South America. Then you will need another answer to fill in the gaps.

I sailed in late January with one other member on a 41-foot ketch. We left out into the Gulf of Mexico with a Northern on our heals. Winter in the Gulf is tricky with cold fronts pushing down. Summer is worse with tropical storms and hurricanes. Go in the winter months and make for the Dry Tortugas. Be very careful in the Keys and do not attempt to dock/anchor at night because it is very difficult to find the channels. Stay in deep water till morning and then visually inch your way into Ft. Jefferson. It will take you about a week to 10 days. The fishing is wonderful and you will see many other boats making the trip. A six-pack of beer will trade for many pounds of shrimp.

The Ft. Jefferson to Key West trip will take a full day. Leave early and you can make Key West by late afternoon. When anchoring off Christmas Tree across from Key West, be prepared for a very strong tidal current. You will need good arms or a motor to make it to dry land from you anchorage. Also, the Federal agencies will board your boat and inspect your boat from keel to mast. Have your paperwork ready and tell them where your guns are. I would not advise on this trip without a firearm. Do not venture close to Haiti or Cuba. Make for San Juan and then decide on island hopping or a more direct sail to Venezuela. Any repairs or boat work is very cheap in South America. Also, Tortola in the BVI's is an excellent stop for any repairs. You can anchor in the bay on the north side of St. Croix. Rum sells for about 2 dollars a fifth. If you don't drink, it is nice to have something to barging with anyway.

Be cautious about who you allow on-board. There are many stories of bad things happening to good people. Use common sense.

I would go to Port of Spain in Trinidad for fuel. Again, be careful to lock your boat. You can stay off the coast about 20 miles going south to Rio and make stops along the way. It is a long way and the season is changing to summer as you head south. If you decide to make time head out into the South Atlantic and the winds are stronger. You will have steady winds and make good time.

From Rio to Terra Del Fiego will challenge your experience. I don't know if you want to make the turn into the Pacific and head north on the western side of South America. You can make for Easter Island and then Mexico or San Diego. I would say you could make San Diego by the end of April or May. Hurricane season starts in June and I would reverse my route quickly. The Pacific side will be tamer than the Atlantic side on this schedule. I would consider to just truck my boat home from San Diego.

In any case it would be a wonderful adventure and very exciting. Plan for electrical failures and have back-up systems. Carry two GPS units, extra batteries, extra flashlights, flares, and a firearm. Leave your plans with family and friends and call in to them at various waypoints. Watch for supertankers because they will not see you or slow down.
