How to Organise Food and Drinks for CrazySail

fruits-61896_1920
The organised ones amongst you have probably already started thinking about how to organise food and drinks for the week.  Here is a guide on how to buy and pack food for your crew during the week.

Where to buy 

Some of the crews are bringing their own food and drinks from Italy as they will be driving to Croatia (and you know those Italians are very fussy about their food!). If you aren’t transporting food to Croatia with you, then we recommend buying food and drink at the supermarket near the marina on the Saturday when we arrive. Then everyone can load up their boats at the same time.
Every second day we will moor at a location where you can buy more fresh groceries and ice. But these grocery stores will smaller and more expensive than the original marina so make sure you are organised from the start.

Food

It is up to your crew to decide what meals you will be preparing each day. We are sailing to some amazing remote locations so just be aware there won’t be many opportunities to go to restaurants and dine out. Here are a few points on things to remember with food:
  • easy meals to cook on a boat are recipes with pasta, cold rice, eggs etc.
  • bring lots of snacks 
  • bring salt, pepper, sugar and condiments
  • don’t buy too many cold things like milk and meats because they won’t last very long in the boat fridge 
  • don’t buy bananas because the weather is hot and they will stink up the boat

Drinks

You know what and how much your crew wants to drink during the week so you should buy your drinks accordingly. But importantly, don’t skimp on bringing water.
  • drinking water (2L per person per day)
  • spirits
  • mixers 
  • cocktail ingredients 
  • beer
  • cider
  • prosecco 
  • coffee (there is no coffee in Croatia!)

Other important things to buy

  • anti-seasickness medication (like ear patches called transcop). Even if you don’t think you will get seasick, you should have this on the boat just in case because seasickness is like a hangover from hell that never goes away!
  • ice to keep drinks and food cold 
  • rubbish and plastic bags
  • sponges and cleaning products 
  • toilet paper 
  • paper towels
  • plastic plates, cups and cutlery (unless you like washing dishes and using up all of your water supply each day)
  • sunscreen (being red and peeling from sunburn is not sexy)

How to look HOT for the YACHT

Last week, we blogged about our bright and sexy new polo shirts for this year’s CrazySail crew.  The order has been placed and we confirm the price is 16 Euro per person.  Each skipper will be collecting payment from everyone in their crew soon.

This week, we are continuing our excitement about what to wear on the yacht this summer.  Check out our cheeky new Pinterest board ‘Hot for the Yacht’ which will give you some fashion inspiration of what to pack for your CrazySail wardrobe.  Just click on any of the images below to see the full board of images.  We love the classic nautical blues and whites but we also look forward to seeing everyone in fun bright colours.  You know, to match our fun bright CrazySail shirt.
