How to Provision a Sailing Yacht Book Coming Soon!
Food is the cornerstone of a happy crew and a successful voyage.
Good meals keep morale high, even when the conditions are challenging. Food also helps stave off boredom and gives even the doldrums sailors something to think about and do.
But how much will you need? How will you store it? What foods will last long enough?
Knowing how to provision well will transform your long-distance cruising. Being able to make exciting meals weeks into an ocean crossing or still having milk with your tea deep into the tropics will make all the difference.
With three years of offshore cruising experience, I’ve provisioned a lot. I’ve provisioned for month-long passages, bought food in huge French supermarkets and tiny Caribbean shops. I’ve bartered for fruit on roadsides and created meals from the strangest looking vegetables you can imagine.
How to Provision a Sailing Yacht will cover all the ins and outs of provisioning a cruising boat and by the end you’ll be confident untying the lines and setting off fully stocked.
This new full-length book will cover things like;
- Storage methods
- Cooking gas
- Provisioning challenges
- Best places to provision in sailing destinations
- Availability of food and water
- What to take on voyages
- Tins, staples and fresh food
- How to ferment and make your own cruising food
- How to store and cook fish you catch
- Small items that will transform your offshore meals
- How to plan for contamination and delays
- Emergency provisions
And tons more!
Whether you’re provisioning in the UK, the Canary Islands or a beautiful Caribbean island, this book will help you know what to take, how much you’ll need and how to make the most of your food while sailing.
It’ll also teach you how to keep your meals interesting and your snacks delicious. Nothing makes a night-watch sailor more sad than finding out the biscuit supply is empty!
