Now is the time for last minute preparations: 13 hungry sailors will need to eat well, drink well, sleep as well as possible in order to perform. That’s a lot of planning because we don’t have refrigeration in order to save weight. In fact we carry very little water as we make water along the way with our Spectra watermaker. I personally like the pure water that comes out of the Spectra watermaker. But we need to supplement it with vitamins and minerals. It takes quite a bit of planning, because once we leave the dock, there are no stores until Honolulu!
