Itineraries (New)

An itinerary is a route divided into legs showing the planned locations and dates of the main stopovers from the start (initial departure) to the very end (final arrival), which is the destination of the vessel's journey (also called voyage, trip, torn, or expedition).

Each leg has a departure and an arrival date and location. It may also have additional waypoints in between, which might be stopping points or course change points.

Itineraries for vessels at sea are never precise! We use three accuracy levels for the planning status to avoid confusion about what is likely to happen or not:

  • Pending (not accurate) – initial idea, possibilities
  • Preliminary (kinda accurate) – changes may still apply
  • Planned (fairly accurate) – this is what's meant to happen

The duration of an itinerary is counted in days (start to end date) and the leg in nights (departure to arrival date). That is because you may arrive on a Monday and leave on a Tuesday. Therefore, there can be confusion if you were there for one or two days, but it would strictly count as one night without any confusion.

Therefore, you would say you went on a 14-day holiday or trip (the itinerary) and spent 13 nights on all your legs combined, for example.

There is also an important distinction between planning (what's the intention) and estimating (what's calculated). A time of arrival is always an estimate as a calculation is required; that's why it is called ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival).

You can't plan to leave San Francisco and arrive in Hawaii 10 minutes later, regardless of how desperate your intention is. If you intend to arrive in Hawaii by a certain date and estimate 10 days for the journey, then you can plan to leave San Francisco 12 to 15 days before. Therefore, your departure date is planned (what's the intention), and the arrival is still an estimate (what's calculated based on season, winds, currents, and many other factors). Plans can change due to weather, government requirements, breakdowns, delays, etc.

The following tips are worth noting to manage your itinerary and maintain an excellent overview:

  • 1) Name your itinerary with a short and clear title, such as 2024 Antarctic Expedition or 2024 Italy Family Torn, that is descriptive, easy to remember, and simple to refer to in conversations.
  • 2) You can set your itinerary's visibility to private while planning it, share it with only those you contact, or share it with anyone who views your profile.
  • 3) Next, add each leg of the significant stopovers by date and location.
  • 4) Then, keep updating each leg as required.

Be realistic and mindful when planning an itinerary. People will arrange their timing and life around it, taking time off work, booking flights, arranging accommodation, etc. It's crucial to let the crew know how accurate they can expect the itinerary to be.

Dear Shipmates


I have now been sailing for over 30 years and before that I owned a fishing boat with a good mate of mine so I have had lots of experience with boats and sailing.
Sailing is a great past time and can lead to other things like fishing, snorkeling,exploration of remote areas and even things like mountain/hill climbing.
I don't like to sit in one place for long periods of time as I would rather keep moving on to new horizons. Sitting in a marina for a long time does not excite me much, but of course, regular visits (to a Marina) are necessary for replenishment.
I have a desire to wander off the beaten track to explore new places when possible.

About the boat, the plans, and current crew

comfortablevery safeshare experiencevisit remote places

My yacht is an Adams 45 steel cutter with a very practical fitout which includes a large freezer, electric furling and sheet winches, 4 burner stove, a tinny with an outboard on davits which can be launched in minutes. A full range of electronic devices is fitted. The cockpit is mostly weather proof and comfortable.

What is expected of the crew

clean & tidycommittedeasy-goingenthusiasticfit & healthyfriendlyrespectfultrustworthygood communicatorpoliteLGBTIQA+ respectfulsense of humorcan pay own expenseswill not bring a bicyclewill not bring a pet

Sailing experience is not important but rather the things that matter, I believe, are a happy disposition, enthusiasm and a relaxed attitude.
Also, a second or third pair of eyes are invaluable for watch keeping.
I have usually cooked but I would not knock back a Master Chef!!!
