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.

our dependence on foreign oil.
