When you have a moment I'm curious to know what you took, and what you used/learnt/wished you had got on your RIB-based dining.

90% of all bars , dry fruits etc we took back home .
Reason was simple - the entire trip was planned in an excellent way . Beside of good breakfasts in the morning - usually a full English - we had also almost every day good lunch stops .
The boats who arrived first in the evening reserved for all a table for dinner .
On comparison to the Round Ireland O did not even loose weight

Yep, A full English, Irish or Scottish every morning, maybe a serial bar or some mixed nuts in the day. I had a berocca every morning.

The worst thing was having somewhere for your drinks bottles during the day that was close to hand without them ending up on the deck near the transom!

Chocolate melts, beer cans split and everything gets covered in saltwater.

On the plus side we found some great places to eat

I put on weight mostly mussel across my shoulders through holding on when the mad German was driving

We did have a water supply and enough nuts and suff if we needed them.

Thanks all for your input, I'll do a write up after the boat show

Don't do what countless sailing clubs do and get the catering people to bag up a few sandwiches made with grated cheese & mayo!

Echoing the above I'd go for a stack of mars bars (but get the smaller ones - then you can eat the whole lot in a oner & not worry about the resulting sticky mess as the caramel bit does it;s impressions of an Asterix Fondue!) Also the fruit &nut chewy bars are good - the food stays dry, but be careful as some are very dry and will turn to fine ground dust in your pocket!

Only down side is you end up eating compressed hamster food all day!

Kemndal mint cake is a good source of neat sugar if you need a hit, but again go for the small bars as it also absorbs water nicely then turns to concrete when it dries out.

Back to the bananas that's what a lot of the dinghy guys eat before races - due to the slow release carbs & all that.

Bananas are best - agree - but as earlier mentioned hard to get when you arrive at the marina ..
What I would do differently and taking Alex comments into consideration about drinking water - I would install again water bottle brackets on the grab rail which accommodating 1.5 liter bottles - with a hose and valve for drinking .
Had this last year on my Searider round Ireland where I was mostly single handed and it worked perfectly well !
Some people were smiling but used this system already many years before doing enduro dirt bike races .
It also prevents bottles flying around and prevents dehydration .
