Product Description

The Care and Feeding of Sailing Crew has become the preferred resource for cruising and racing sailors - whether they're planning a weekend afloat or a round-the-world voyage.

This unique volume covers everything from outfitting a galley to organizing meals safely in rough weather; from controlling seasickness to creating the right conditions that ensure your crew stays well-rested and alert.

But this book is more than just a manual for the CME (Crew maintenance engineer) it is also the story of a storm ridden 49 day passage across the North Pacific which, like no other book written on the subject, shows just what it is like to prepare food and care for crew at sea.

This revised fourth edition includes all the timeless advice of previous editions, handling finances afloat, waste disposal, choosing clothing for sailing offshore, incorporating modern technology in the galley and making sure the crew stays healthy even in adverse climates.

Guides to reprovisioning as you voyage and buying wines and liquors around the world have been expanded to include many off-the-beaten track destinations now attracting intrepid voyagers.

This book a must have for not only cruising sailors but charter boat crews and armchair sailors.
