Calculate the Time Component
Now, let’s get into the voyage calculation. I normally like to start from the time component. Total time, in this situation, is the (1) ballast leg, (2) loading time (3) transit time, (4) discharging time and (5) weather.
|Savannah||Sail 1,354 nautical miles in ballast||5|
|Moji||Sail 9,669 nautical miles via Panama||31|
|Weather||Factor 5% on 39 days||2|
There are many free sources of distance tables available on the Internet. Here are just a couple:
