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.

Rotation Description Days
Savannah Sail 1,354 nautical miles in ballast 5
Houston Loading 3
Moji Sail 9,669 nautical miles via Panama 31
Moji Discharge 3
Weather Factor 5% on 39 days 2
 44 days

There are many free sources of distance tables available on the Internet. Here are just a couple:
