Looking at our answers above, it looks like we've answered two questions:
A. What do you eat on a normal day's cruise?
B. What emergency rations do you carry on a long cruise?
I answered A which proves I don't read stuff as carefully as Poly. A good supply of readily accessed A rations will stave of the time when you may need to dig into the B rations. When you DO need to hit the B rations, you'll want them the way Nos likes his women
easy, hot and ample. I'm thinking for when you end up in some refuge like Mike Thornton did on the RI. The self heating MREs HAVE to be a good idea but I know that a lot of them are a bit light on calories. As you have the jetboil now anyway, consider packing a few "instant pasta meals" like Knorr Pastaria Pasta Carbonara 170G - Groceries - Tesco Groceries
. They're no delicacy but when you're cold and hungry they'll taste just fine. Cooked in a couple of minutes by adding to boiling water, high in calories, cheap and pack small.
Take lots of fresh water - for cooking of course but really for drinking - you sweat a lot off on a long day at sea. I always hide a large Lucozade somewhere about my person for emergencies - good for seasickness or just a quick lift. The concealed bottle assures me a good welcome in Port too
