Endeavour 40 can it cross the Atlantic

by sharkybrakauskas » Fri Dec 30, 2016 12:13 am

I have an Endeavour 40 that i am planning on crossing With the Europe ARC 2018. Has anyone sailed or seen an Endeavor 40 sail across the North Atlantic? I have raced the boat in the Chicago to Mackinaw race and she sails great and was quite quick. I have sailed across the Atlantic on a Morgan 43 and the Endeavour seems to be in the same class. Any advice or comments would be greatly appreciated.

People have sailed across the Atlantic in tiny boats, I think the smallest is less than 2 meters. Its all a matter of how much discomfort you are willing to endure, and how much time you have. I am sure that the Endeavor would be a fine boat for this crossing.

Sharky,
Have never sailed an Endeavor 40, so I can't really remark if the boat will suit your needs in an Atlantic crossing. Have found this website to be very helpful with good info. on many different boats to comparative/contrast their various performance characteristics.

Thanks for the link Bill O. Yeah, men sailed across the Atlantic in small boats. So it's all a matter comfort. I'm willing to endure a lot.

Triple check your hatches, ports, and rigging; take critical spares and sail repair tape/etc. Lots of chafe guard... watch your weather, and have a great crossing... you'll be fine
