Special considerations when it's just you two.
The primary goal when provisioning a fully crewed offshore race boat is to ensure that your crew, once underway, will receive maximum calories and adequate hydration to enable peak sailing performance for a minimum effort.
How long will this race take you?
Before you can begin planning for how well you will eat on this trip you need to figure out how long it’s going to take. Note the phrase “eating well.” You are going to be occupied with three things on this voyage: sailing the boat well, sleeping and eating. With a little navigating and i-pod zoning out as well. So even the most basic of boats should pay some attention to making the process of fueling the crew efficient and enjoyable.
