In Provisioning for your Caribbean Sailing Vacation Donna Wolfson provides some great insight into one of the key elements of a successful charter bareboat sailing vacations. Starting with a brief overview of the provisioning options available on most bareboat charters, Donna then focus her attention on one of the joys of bareboating, self provisioning. Aside from getting to choose exactly what you’d like to eat, you have the opportunity to mix with the locals, especially, if there’s an open air market with fruit, vegetables, and fish, and you’ll save the service fee charged by the charter company, too.
Much like our bareboat food and drink advice article on Food and Drink, Donna’s article is a great primer for those bareboating for the first time.
