We're setting up for a trip from the West Coast USA to New Zealand via Mexico and Galapago, Marquesa, Tuomotos etc four up on a well equipped 50ft'er. There are lots of questions about others experiences, recommendations etc but for the moment I'm very interested to know if anyone has or knows of an even a basic check list for food items.

Ideally, it'd be great if this included some info on normal portion sizes, calorific values etc, along with some idea of how readily available the items might be (around the world).

If there's nothing available publicly and it's of interest, I'll consider creating one for (free) publication here and elsewhere from any inputs received.

Finally, we'd also be very interested to hear of experiences relating to the general availability of staples and fresh produce on our journey westward thru the southern Pacific.

Thanks for your help in this best regards.

Peter

One of the best webpages I ever came across to start with is by James Baldwin HERE - from his extensive personal experience on a relatively small boat (just add meat).

Another list of food groups HERE (half-way down the page)

Peter, it would be great to put something together to post here to assist everyone reading this.

Peter,

Here is a good place to start with references:

Also check-out sailblogs of those who have completed most of your planned passage:

http://www.sailblogs.com/member/surprise/

http://www.sailblogs.com/member/zafarse/

http://www.sailblogs.com/member/sora/

http://www.sailblogs.com/member/bluestocking/

http://www.sailblogs.com/member/cisnecito/

http://www.sailblogs.com/member/sanddollar/

We plan to be making the same passages next year and would enjoy following your progress. Do you have a blog or website started? When will you be leaving?

Cheers,

Ken S/V Trim
