Energy Management

Revised: Tuesday, November 27, 2012
PCYC

The production of adequate electric power to perform your lighting and communications requirements, as well as any cooling, inside lighting, navigation and other modern conveniences you may require is important to a safe and comfortable passage.  Electrical failure is a common, and preventable cause of boats turning back after the start.

Many skippers take their boats "off the grid" for a month or so before the race to reveal any weaknesses in their charging and battery systems.

A worksheet is provided which may be of assistance to you and will meet the requirements of the NOR.
