VIA CON ME - Provisioning for the ARC

18 August 2012

For me, it is the 4th time with the ARC. I like to give you skippers and crew the advice to organize early the provisioning for the passage.
I made good experiences with
asking the sailors, what they are eat, what they are don't eat
ask what they prefer for drinking (water with/without gas, orange juice, tea, coffee etc.)
do a plan for the menus you want to cook
buy net to hang up the vegetables, fruits
account for 26 / 30 days (cruisers)
take instead of milk in a can milk powder
install a water maker (e.g. 5-6 L p/hours)
take instant tea and coffee with you
and last but not least: before you take the things on board, be sure, that you do not bring any carton with you and wash everything  before you storage it
And now, here a menu you can cook easily:
Couscous Salad for 8 Portions:
250 - 300 gram Couscous (1 Minute)
3 Tomatoes
1 Cucumber
1 Onion
a handful of Raisins
1/4 Paprika
Balsamic Vinegar
lemon juice
Olive Oil
Pepper, Salt, Paprika, if you get Mint herbs
cook the couscous for 1/2 Minutes as descript on the pack. Cool it down. Cut all vegetables in little pieces and mix it with the couscous. Put vinegar, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper etc. in it, steer it / taste it and if necessary but some more salt or pepper etc. on it. That-s it folks. Easy done, and every body like it.
You can serve it together with melon, give a nice dish on hot days.
