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
- 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
- drinking water (2L per person per day)
- cocktail ingredients
- 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)
