Record breaking offshore sailor Dee Caffari MBE talks to Sara Gross about a sailor’s diet and nutritional requirements when they are at sea for extended periods.  Dee shares her vast experiences of food selection, packing for long trips, desalinating water, and the all important treats, especially when you’re alone on the ocean.  Freeze dried meals have come a long way but how much can you take before it gets really boring?
