“We really enjoyed reading the thoughtful words on how to live with a small footprint, and the ethos, strategies and recipes behind it all. The photography is stunning! Chef Scott thinks all the recipes sound delicious. – Eliz and Scott, SV Oyster, @sv_oyster

This is a really informative guide for sailors and we’re inspired by the concept of Nude Food! We love the background info the authors have included and the detail they’ve gone into when explaining everything. Elliot and Anais, SV Nalukai, @sailing_nalukai

Cruising is much more than just sailing. It’s about travel, exploring empty shores and plunging into new cultures. It’s about taking time for your passions and living in harmony with the watery world that buoys, sustains, and changes you.

Dave, the hunter; Catherine, the gatherer; and their little fish Maya, have spent the last two decades afloat. They can’t imagine a better way to live and sate their adventurous spirits than visiting faraway places on their catamaran Wild One.

This is a guide for new and old sailors striving for better health, greater self-sufficiency and a tiny footprint on the sea. Inside, the authors share extensive provisioning advice and over 160 simple, delicious recipes anyone can make with food hunted from the sea or gathered from shore and local markets. It’s for tiny galleys, long passages, perfect beach sunsets, and those times when stocks might be low, but the fish are biting.

    I ordered two books, one for me and one for my cruising in-laws. This book is a work of art and a very impressive first paragraph after the title page. Such an inspiration.

  2. Camilla De Conto

    The recipes are amazing! I loved all of them. I think they are very realistic for a boat galley and very practical as well. Overall I think it is a special book. I like very much that it is more than just a cookbook and the chapters on provisioning beforehand, help have some practicality onboard. I absolutely love it. – SV Songster, @sailingsongster
