Join Anita on #DustyRoads as she explores the differences between a mile and a nautical mile. For anyone passionate about boating or sailing, knowing that a mile on the water isn’t the same as a mile on land is essential. A nautical mile is based on the Earth’s circumference and is used in marine and air navigation. It equals approximately 1.1508 regular (statute) miles or about 1.852 kilometers. This difference can significantly impact navigation, course-plotting, and travel time estimates. Understanding these nuances helps ensure accurate navigation and enhances the overall sailing experience.
