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 every-thing from outfitting a galley to organizing meals safely in rough weather; from controlling seasickness to creating the right conditions for a well-rested crew.
This third edition has been expanded to incorporate new information on nutrition, on waste disposal, and on current methods for handling finances, officialdom, and the paperwork involved in sailing to new countries. New sections cover entertaining on board, feeding vegetarian crew, choosing clothing for sailing offshore, and incorporating modern technology in the galley. The unique 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 volume will definitely be of interest to those who have read Lin's previous editions. The story of a North Pacific passage on a 24 foot cutter is skillfully woven through the book to highlight how life on board feels at sea.
