By Alan Villiers. Four hundred and fifty years ago, Portuguese in sturdy sailing ships were crossing the Atlantic on the spring east wind to fish the Grand Banks off Newfoundland, 2, miles away. They fished with hook and line, filled their holds with cod, and raced for home before the fierce northern winter caught them. Fogs, gales, and freezing weather took their toll each year, and still the fishermen sailed, for cod had come to mean the difference between food and hunger in much of southern Europe. Salt cod was eaten on Catholic fast days and formed part of army rations. New Ships, Old Dangers. Though time has brought changes in the size, shape, and gear of the ships, the 2, hardy fishermen who man the fleet face most of the same hazards their ancestors did.
