Per  the speed of light in a vaccum is exactly 299792458 m/s.
Per  a furlong is 220 yards and a yard is exactly 0.9144 m.
Per  a fortnight is 14 days.
As I didn't find a good authority for what definition of a day a fortnight is
measured in, I'll assume here a day is 86400 SI seconds.
Thus, the speed of light in a vaccum is approximately
1.80*10^12 furlongs per fortnight.
1.80*10^12 = 299792458*86400*14/(220*0.9144)
