This extraordinary journey requires day-to-day planning, especially where food is concerned. Even though the sea is full of fish, becoming an expert fisherman doesn’t just happen overnight! And the stopovers don’t always mean finding the food stores you like.

But the family has found its own cruising pace. Coconuts, passion fruit, chayote fruit and barbecues on deck are cooked up in improvised recipes!
