The main difference in procurement and preparation of meal during your sailing trip in relation to mainland is in limited capacity for storing food and smaller space for delivering culinary masterpieces. Does that mean that you will be hungry during your sailing trip?
Absolutely not! Sailors, in addition to being adventurous and people who love nature and all that it provides, are known as big cooks. On the other hand, this does not mean that you will be able to prepare the roasted lamb with the potatoes on board.
During your sailing trip you will notice that there is always something to chew, bite or add to a person sitting next to you, especially in such a small area where everything is kind of nice to try. But let's start:
Food for your sailing trip
It is customary to visit your local supermarket at buy food before you board your sailboat. The shopping list usually contains everything you need for a multi-day sailing, with the exception of perishables. Remember, you do not need to buy everything before boarding, because you will be stopping in various places during your sailing vacation, where you will be able to buy what you need that day. After all, it is much better to buy some of the freshest foods (like fish, meat and seasonal fruits and veggies) every day.
You need to keep in mind that on board, especially sailing boats, you will be eating and drinking a lot more than when you are on the mainland. An active vacation such as sailing means proper nutrition for an active stay on the water. Since you will be more active during sailing vacation, we suggest you eat more frequently but smaller amounts of food. Dinner is in the most cases the main meal, because you will then be anchored in the marina, and will probably want to go for a dinner at some local tavern, or if you decide to anchor in one of the coves you will definitely want to be able to easily prepare the food on board.
Whether you are used to having a dinner on the beach, we strongly recommend that you have a quiet evening on board, with your closest friends and enjoy a sky full of stars, good wine and chatting late in the night.
