30 Bananas a Day!

Some time back someone posted an idea of putting together a lfrv sailing expedition (Central America, Northern S. America and the S. Pacific).  Can't seem to find that thread.  At the time it sounded like a fantasy, but I'm sitting on an island on the Galapagos munching on locally grown, organic "silk" bananas, looking out on a harbor with all these beautiful sailboats ...  never thought this dream would come true.  Why not shoot for something epic?

Anyone else interested in trying this idea out?  I think the idea was to find a cool captain, rent out a boat for a couple weeks, and see how it goes.  If things roll well, maybe pool together an purchase a boat?  Or maybe someone on 30bad has a boat but needs a crew ... or funds to clean it up?

I'm taking sailing courses currently, aiming to have my offshore yachtmaster certificate within 2 years. Coastal skipper this year. In the long run, I definitely aim to set sail for a long trip with my family on my own boat, but that is still a few years away. I currently have no idea on how to stay lfrv for weeks on the greater passages, such as over the Atlantic, or over the Pacific. On the shorter distances I'm doing now, just a few days on the sea and up to a week on the boat, it naturally isn't much of a problem. My sailing schools are fine with my diet and the crew volunteering I do so far is on such short trips that I can bring my food in a bag.


There are tons of crewing opportunities out there, with many dedicated websites for yachts seeking crew and crew seeking yachts. Some skippers are OK with 'odd' dietary choices as long as you're willing to do your share of the duties. It can become a storage space issue on longer trips depending on boat and crew, as fruits do take up quite a lot of space. LFRVs also consume tons more water than your standard crew members, which can become another storage issue. On the other hand if you have a 100 % LFRV crew with a boat of your own, you can take out the stove etc. and get some extra space.
