Sailing With Style
American Sailing E-News

July 2010


Welcome to Sailing With Style, the American Sailing Association's new monthly e-newsletter!
As the name suggests, this publication emphasizes the lifestyle aspects of sailing. "Bareboat Chartering Essentials" will provide you key tips both to save money and to ensure that your next chartering adventure is as problem-free as possible. In "The Cockpit Lounge" you'll learn how to use social media to meet and stay in touch with like-minded sailors... stay connected and stay on the water! "The Nautical Chef" will show you how to make a meal that doesn't just "work" on the boat, but has your crew talking about the food on your trip for months or years to come.  And what would a lifestyle magazine be without some "do's" and "don'ts" of nautical attire? More on that later!
Please enjoy, and email us with your suggestions so that we can continue to improve our newsletter. Hope to see you at one of ASA's flotillas, member events, or local sailing club functions soon!

The Nautical Chef
Container Foods

by Mark Ramsdell, ASA Member

Hard tack biscuits, anyone? Perhaps if we serve them with a ration of rum, you won't mind the weevils. The nautical chef's challenges today are far different than they were in the days of square-riggers, thankfully, but the "galley slave" still faces considerable obstacles in planning, provisioning, prepping, cooking, serving, and cleaning up after hungry sailors. For the benefit of sailing chefs everywhere -- from passage-makers to dockside entertainers -- ASA presents the nautical chef newsletter column to help members learn from one another's experiences, cooking tips, and recipes.
