The Care and Feeding of Sailing Crew by Lin Pardey

Since it was first published in 1980, The Care and Feeding of Sailing Crew has become the preferred resource for cruising sailors—whether they’re planning a weekend afloat or a round-the-world voyage. Almost four decades of offshore living experience and more than 185,000 miles of sailing—on their own cutters, on race boats, and on yacht deliveries—have given Lin and Larry Pardey an ideal perspective for sharing useful information on all aspects of preparing for an enjoyable life aboard. This unique volume covers everything from outfitting a galley to organizing meals safely in rough weather; from controlling seasickness to creating the right conditions for a well-rested crew.

In this revised Third Edition, Lin Pardey has incorporated new information on nutrition (responding to sailors’ increased interest in healthful eating), on waste disposal, and on current methods for handling finances, officialdom, and the paperwork involved in sailing to new countries. New and expanded sections cover entertaining on board, feeding vegetarian crew, choosing clothing for sailing offshore, and incorporating modern technology in the galley. Her 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
