This boat was LEAN. Really makes me appreciate the kitchen on my Dad’s Beneteau 😂
14 plus Skipper and First Mate... This was the Clipper Round the World Race 2019-2020. I forget what we were making but it couldn't have been any good. Those cans of food we got from Cape Town were disgusting... We found chicken bones in a cone of veggie curry!How many crew?
Looks positively luxurious compared to Rosebud, a 65 footer with 16-17 crew. We had one burner, no counters. We brought only prepared freeze dried meals. Boiled lots of water, put the freeze dried concoction in the cooler with plenty of hot water, let it sit for hours and ate that for lunch and dinner. Breakfast was oatmeal or protein bar. Snacks were nuts or jerky. We got there fast enough that we didn't mind too much. I think the longest race was LA to Honolulu (Transpac) which was five days(?). The head had only a curtain around it for privacy. Never more than one female crew member on board. I don't remember a sink, but we must have had one. Finally talked hubby into a cruiser and have a lovely galley with a brand new range and updated refrigeration. Even have a portable ice maker onboard. Forget the water maker, it holds 160 gals water which is plenty after the meager amount racers allow. Yeah, we'd carry the required water for ballast but we'd dump it asap and only make enough water for the freeze dried food and the drink needed daily.
