Sunday Sail ... but it is really all about the food!

This past Sunday we took friends of ours out for a day sail, and they agreed to bring all the food. Now, when someone agrees to bring all the food, I never say no. I feel like I would be be making a huge mistake. No-one has brought food that was not good or not boat friendly.


We have friends who sail with us on a regular basis, and if you are reading this you will know who you are. They are also our provisioners, they know just the right amount of food and drink we will need on any given sailing day, weekend or week long stay on the boat. I don't know how they do it. But I love when are with us, that is one thing the Captain and I don't have to worry about.


This weekend sail was with some other friends and they wanted to take care of all the food, and did they ever. We started the sail with a drink of the day, which was berry & orange fruit juice, St. Germaine (Elderflower Liquor), and Prosecco, served over ice. It was not only yummy it was also refreshing.


From there we went to the charcuterie board, well charcuterie table in the cockpit.


We had meats, cheeses, fruits, nuts and spreads, I could have eaten this all day!


After this they made the most beautiful burata, heirloom tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, arugula, basil, and pesto salad.


And if you look at the top of the photo, you can see we all got more burata on our plates.


I was so full after this I did not eat anymore food (and land was calling me), but from what I heard there was burgers, dogs, sausages, caramelized onions, and veggies for dinner.


I was fortunate enough to catch a bit of one of the amazing sunsets we have here in Gloucester Harbor, you too could see one of these amazing sunsets on a Sunset Sail on Sail Añejo.
