Our boat will shortly be racing in the Newport to Bermuda Race, which we have done may times in the past. Our skipper, in an attempt to shed the amount of weight we carry with us, in addition to trying to avoid sausages rolling around the cabin through the Gulf Stream, has come up with the suggestion of taking tinned food. We would then be able to reduce the amount of water we carry because that water would already be in the tins. Make sense? No, not to the rest of the crew either. Nor do we have a water maker.
We have a small, top loading refrigerator (not working), and a stove of death (bucket on gimbles with gas flame under a pot).
So, the question is, what would your approach be as to how we approach the food v water argument for a crew of 7/8 on a 3-4 day race?
