Provisioning - Any dietary restrictions, please tell us in advance so we can plan accordingly.

Please let us know if there are preferences and culinary styles you enjoy and we can make arrangements for those breakfasts, lunches, and dinners aboard.

Alcohol - Wine and beer are not included in the price and we recommend ordering in advance so we can have wines aboard upon arrival. Throughout the week, there will be opportunities to purchase wines at the wine shops along the way and because the boat has limited space, it might be best to provision for 4 days at a time.
