Those who plan their trip shopping properly save time and nerves. In addition, there is no risk of forgetting important things. So here is a shopping list for your next boat adventure.
Food and drink planning for your sailing trip
A sailing trip like this needs to be well planned. Your crew and you want to spend a few days on the boat and you have to live on something – air and a lot of love, that describes the spirit of Join The Crew perfectly, but unfortunately it will not be quite enough to survive on board. There are several reasons why it makes sense to use a shopping list when shopping for a trip.
5 reasons why you should make a shopping list before sailing
1 – You do not forget anything
This is very important, because in some sailing areas you have no or only limited possibility to buy food, drinks and other things. It is best to find out more from your skipper in advance.
2 – Everyone wants a piece of the pie
Usually you are not alone on board – at least not with us. Sailing makes you hungry and all crew members want to be full. For this it takes i. d. Usually quite a bit. The shopping list will help you to plan the large quantities better.
3 – allergies, intolerances & Co? No problem!
Do you have allergy sufferers in the crew or there are any intolerances, you have enough options for the corresponding fellow sailors to determine alternatives.
4 – Chaos wastes time
Shopping for around 9 people can quickly end up in a mess. You have a lot of different things that you have to buy and that in large quantities. The shopping list should be divided into sensible areas (see our example) so that you don’t have to run wild from A to B to find something – this will save you a lot of time.
5 – One for all and all for shopping
If you distribute your sailing shopping list over several pieces of paper, each sailor can take care of an area of shopping and you can get through everything faster …
We want to give you a basic shopping list here. If you book a sailing trip with us, you will once again receive a shopping list for sailing that is separately adapted to the area.
