Eating’s cheating!

Just take lots of water and a flask of something hot, you might lose that new belly you are sporting.

On the Round Ireland I was fine with dry fruits , dry meat , nuts - all waterproof packed - and water . At sea I was never really hungry and a few fruits & water gave me enough energy to get on .I never had the wish for a hot coffee or tea although weather was not always nice .
Bananas are great and would be my first choice but in most marinas hard to get ..
Sausages are also nice - the german team had them but they should not be too spicy so that you wish to drink plenty of water after .
Coolbox would be nice but it should be than a compressor box . The other car stuff does not work well and for simple cool boxes you always need ice - which is also hard to get every morning .
The best thing after being the whole day at sea is to have the first COLD BEER in the evening at the pub

KISS is the rule, Keep It Simple Stupid, take stuff you can eat and drink without knocking you're teeth out.

Taking food that turns to mush will not really be worth eating
My favourite was Mars bars and water while at sea
Loads of bottled water is a must, if you're wearing a dry suit then wash then neck seal in water to keep the salt off it, wash you're face for same reason

Unless you're on a cabin RIB, that won't survive the first hour

The cool box was more about protecting the victuals from getting BTF (Battered To Feck) than keeping cool. Nobody wants a battered banana. We keep, the silverware, china & crystal glasses in ours when we're out
