Sailing the ROARING 40's

1. Have you sailed the Roaring 40's?
2. If so what direction east to west or west to east?
3. How many days did you spend in the 40's?
4. What latitudes?

5. What boat & size did you sail?
6. What did you learn about the boat equipment/rigging?
7. What clothing did you wear? Any brand names?

8. What would you do different to prepare for this same trip?

Was that way to many questions?
