Currently 60 miles off Newport.
Not wanting have to cart a ton of fuel off of the boat in Newport as I prepared for the Bermuda Race, I filled the two fuel tanks and for the first time left our extra fuel jugs empty.
At the same time, I adopted the “Captain Ron method of calculating landfall”.
From the movie….
Marty: “Go ahead Captain Ron, tell them how you know that we are almost there.”
Captain Ron: “Well, listen carefully everyone. When we left (Bermuda) we had just enough fuel to get to (Newport). AND…NOW, (engine dies) We are out of fuel!!!”
No additional comment required…..
