Food supplies – Summer Trip 2014

One way I thought would help me budget for the trip ahead is to start stocking up on food before I left. Should I I run short of cash, or find myself on an anchorage or a long way from a supermarket I’ll have enough reserves to keep me well fed.

Victualing for a trip that will see me in sight of land for 90% of the trip seems a bit extreme (last time I did this was with Oliver and Will getting ready to for the ARC crossing to St Lucia), but hey who cares, once I’m on the go all I’ll only need to buy fresh produce.

Here’s a few supplies I think are vital to any boat trip 😀
