Snacks

Before an overnight race, I try to get to BJ''s or Costco and buy about 10 pounds of mid-sized chocolate bars. They provide a great energy boost, especially around 2:30 to 3:30 in the morning. No crew has ever finished them all, so some bars stay on board, in perfectly fine condition, for when we''ve hauled the boat and are busy pulling the batteries, winterizing the engine, putting antifreeze in the water system, or, later, chipping ice from the bilge. When it''s time to do the sanding and varnishing, it''s time for a new supply.
