Multiplying nautical miles by 2025.37 will get you close enough to yards. And - of course - dividing yards by the same number gets NM.



Meters and yards are practically interchangeable for short distances


I measure all distances in sheppeys (about 7/8 of a mile, or the closest distance at which sheep remain picturesque.)
