Circumnavigation of North Atlantic in 40 Caliber LRC
I’ve been sailing on and off for fifty years, but seldom out of sight of land and never days from shore. I believe I was subconsciously working my way up to a trip just like this when I purchased my Caliber 40LRC. It was reputed to be, and I have confirmed, an excellent blue water boat. In years past I have made the usual pilgrimages to the Florida Keys and the Bahamas, but I knew that this boat was built for the long haul and just crossing the Gulf Stream was not challenge enough. I was shorting myself, and the boat, by not treating her to a real adventure. Click here for rest of article by Dave Harris, Skipper of the s/v Nonstop a Caliber 40LRC.

Beaufort (NC) is called the "Gateway to the Caribbean." It makes an excellent jumping off point for your cruise south. It's actually only a few nautical miles further to travel from Beaufort, NC to St. Thomas (USVI), than it is to travel from Miami, FL to St. Thomas (USVI), due to the eastward projection of our coastline. In fact, it is considered to be one of the best departure points due to location and logistics. Additionally, the Abacos (Bahamas) are due south from the Beaufort Inlet.

Biodiesel Fuels and Marine Engines
You, too, may soon be running your boat's engine on fatty acid methyl ester. On what?

Whether it came directly from soybeans or corn or from discarded restaurant cooking oil or grease that was refined, these alternatives may hold the key to reducing our dependence on foreign oil.
