C&C Landfall - Ocean Crossing Ability?

I have a C&C landfall 38 and am wondering if anyone out in the cruising community have seen these boats do any major ocean crossings. We have had the boat in 35 knot winds on Lake Winnipeg and she handled like a champ in the close wave. Having 30+ years of sailing experience I feel that the boat is mechanistically and physically sound, however, I have had other sailors say that the boats are really only meant for coastal sailing. Hopefully I can get some direction from others out there.

Landfall 38

Hello!
Your post is from March or April: I just saw it to-day. My wife and I sailed aboard a Landfall 38 called Parbleu! from 1996 to 2006.
We did the Marion-Bermuda in 2001 (going from Montreal to Boston via the Maggies & Halifax both ways), sailed to the Bahamas in 2003, hit a reef in Charleston in April 2004, got the keelbolts straightened and new rudder, sailed in June to Bermuda, Azores, Portugal, wintered in Spain, living on the boat in CÓdiz. Sailed to the Canaries in April-May, left the boat (in the water) in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria 'till January '06. Sailed to Barbados (22 days 4 hours) & Martinique, lived aboard to April. Docked her untill July, sailed from Martinique to St-Martin, Bermuda (3rd time) and Halifax...
That's three crossings and a lot of coastal. Luckily we only suffered through Isabel (2003) and Delta (2005) and survived them quite well.
We had some safety modifications made to conform to the ORC to do the Marion-Bermuda.
We sold the boat in 2008, as grandparents our cruising grounds have shrinked a little... never the less, we are leaving for the Bahamas for the winter in a few days.
Great luck with your projects, if you wish any more info please do not hesitate to write!
Pierre, Le Caboteur

I have Landfall 38 and I am not sure about boat safety for crossing the ocean. Pierre please contact me what safety improvments did you make.
Wher is the boat ? I am in Annapolis MD.

Thanks

Re: C&C Landfall - Ocean Crossing Ability?

Frank, welcome to CF. You should note that the thread that you were posting in dated from 2010, and it is quite possible that the posters are no longer participating in the forum.

I would suggest that you start up a new thread addressing your specific questions.

Cheers,

Jim
