Total Nautical Miles320,651

These distances are culled from eight successive logbooks. Failure of the distance log is not uncommon due to mechanical or electronic problems, or weeding. In this event the distance was calculated using GPS or Loran waypoints, which is always less than the distance actually sailed, thus the numbers are conservative.
