Voyager TY 55  SHAKE-DOWN CRUISE.

Hi guys ! Last week we arrived from  a "shake-down" cruise , non-stop, in full sea conditions of 605 miles .....  we had a good weather window and the voyage went by without incidents .

Our average cruise speed was 8,7 knots but don't have the fuel consumption as yet (think will be close to 21 lit / hr)  Her motion seems pretty good to me. As I gain more experience and improve my judgment on the boat I will pass it on to you . best regards Caio
