Just follow the story of the creator of this social network (s/v Can Drac) aboard their B43.... they started in NYC and have been in the Med for sometime now. Lots of video as well (incl. some of the Ocean Crossing)...

You just need to look at the list of entries to the ARC Rally that crosses the Atlantic E to W every year and see for yourself:
