I know how to sail thanks and now know to never ask for advice on here again. Asking a question doesn't mean I don't know anything. Just trying to get others opinions and just get bullshit in reply.

Sorry the responses didn't meet expectations...

I don't know you or know what you like to cook or how you like to cook.

Someone else's list may not work for you, if they have one. So in order to be helpful try this.

Keep a note pad in your kitchen. Keep track of the things you use and the things you eat. Transfer that to a spreadsheet. You could get fancy and keep track of how much of something you eat - i.e. how long to consume a kilo of sugar? How frequently you use your espresso machine?

Then in 4 years you will know what to buy and how much of it to buy. You will also have a list of all the cooking pots, zip-lock bags and can openers you use.

Then you pare down the list based on what you can live without and how much space you have on your boat. Then you research the countries you are going to and see if they sell gluten free flour or Kale or pomegranates. Then you may decide to eat like a local instead.

As Belizesailor said, You aren't preparing for a nuclear holocaust and I would add that you aren't changing your basic diet.

And if you have read any of the dozens of provisioning threads before posting you don't indicate so. Not that it is a requirement but it helps to do some basic research.

provisioning - Google Search

Peace, out...

The term "bullshit" is a little strong, especially coming from someone who wishes to circumnavigate the planet on the ocean waves and posts about the needs of pans and a first-aid kit on a boating forum. I might have used the term "undue sarcasm" instead, yet even that would be too strong because there is much to be learned from sarcastic sailors. At least as much as can be learned from a greasy engine mechanic. As someone mentioned, a 3-year trip in salt water requires a good sense of humor. **** is going to happen, and usually at the worst possible moment. At least that's what my Irish buddy Murphy tells me.

Cheer up! It's going to be a long trip. Don't forget your pans.

Re: Supplies list for circumnavigating

Since I've been on CF a while I actually feel the responses where pretty much as expected. Sorry but that is the sad truth. The OP might get some real answers at a more distance type forum like SSCA.
