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

Introduction

We are in search of a highly skilled marine engineer with specialized knowledge in electrical and electronic systems to join our team aboard this yacht. This position is for a 24-meter private aluminum sailing yacht, customized for tech-diving expeditions and registered in the Cook Islands. Currently docked in Sicily, we will be spending summer 2024 in the Mediterranean before crossing the Atlantic and spending a season in the Caribbean. Our next destination will be the Pacific Ocean islands, where we plan to stay for several years. In 2023, the yacht underwent a major refit, and all equipment's and systems onboard are brand new. As part of a crew of 4, the selected individual will primarily be responsible for maintaining and ensuring the proper functioning of all electrical and electronic equipment throughout the voyage. Additionally, the person will be expected to assist with navigation and general boat maintenance. The initial contract will be for one year until June 2025, with the possibility of an extension to continue our voyage around the globe indefinitely.
