The 2nd recording by Atlantic Crossing, Full and Away, was produced in 2000 and named one of the top 10 Vermont albums of 2000 by the arts weekly Seven Days.
The boat featured on the album cover, Feather, was a love of Rick's life and his one-time home.

The CD opens with one of their ever popular dance sets. Other tunes sets include Laddie's Return which re-visits the shanty Hieland Laddie from our first album but in instrumental form, a playful interpretation of a Scottish march together with one of Viveka's compositions (Two Dragons), a set of hornpipes played at clog tempo as well as up-tempo, and a final thrash in which Brian cuts loose on the banjo. The songs draw from the Flanders collection (the unlikely tale of the Tarry Sailor), from Robert Tannahill (Are You Sleeping, Maggie?), from the Ohio valley (Shawneetown), and from Viveka's pen: Guiding Star was way too subtle for Peter to notice the imagery, whilst La Maquisarde gives an account of her grandmother who was active in the French resistance during World War II.
