Re: Long distance Sailing. With or without alcohol?

has only been in past year and half the inability to drink at all...kraken spiced rum rocks as a sippin rum.
i do not sail under influence--my boat shows folks yhat yhere is a lot can go wrong. one must be able to troubleshoot NOW as there is no dock so far away from shore.
NOW often means waiting gor XX to wear off wont work so well.
sundowners used to be niice.
water serves me well.....but...
do NOT drink my stash.
caribbean rums....dark not blackstrap unless something stout to accompany the strength of flavor...
and if and when i finally get yo caribbean i will make a rally in honor of my dead brother to as many rum distilleries as possible in a XX day adventure.

Half a pint of hard liquor is simply too much.

FWIW, Soviet/Russian submariners had wine rations on long voyages ever since the existance of submarines in that navy. 100-150ml of red dry daily. This was based on some fairly substantial research, finding that psychological and health benefits outweigh the downside. Just this year they extended the wine rations to surface crews on long voyages.

Re: Long distance Sailing. With or without alcohol?

I wouldn't say we've really done any real passages yet. But for Maryland to Bahamas and Bahamas to Texas we pretty enjoyed a sundowner if the weather was nice and we could relax in the cockpit to enjoy it. No serious drinking but if anyone on the boat had a problem controlling themselves, we'd probably rethink that.
