How’s the Food?

At Sail Caribbean we aim to provide fresh, healthy, and delicious food for everyone! Fresh food is provisioned throughout the program when the boats dock overnight. Students will use our ever-evolving Sail Caribbean Cookbook under the supervision of staff to prepare wonderful meals for the entire crew. Take a look at our sample menu to see what the meals look like during one of our programs! Our students enjoy taking on the challenge of mastering the galley to provide nutritious meals to fuel their team straight through action-packed days.

Taking On The Galley

Our meals aren’t just delicious – they are prepared by the students themselves! At Sail Caribbean, our kids take on the role of chef, preparing and cooking meals within the unique atmosphere of a yacht. As programs’ days go by, students quickly familiarize themselves with galley know-how, gaining expertise, resourcefulness, and creativity with their provisions. A beginner in the kitchen? We won’t let that intimidate you! Soon, you’ll be mastering meal preparation times, enjoying the pride that comes from providing for your team, introducing new, unique items, and adding style to your crew’s menu.

Special Diets

If you’re vegetarian, vegan, kosher, gluten-free, or have other special dietary requirements, we can accommodate most needs. We have lots of experience providing for students with dietary restrictions including peanut allergies, gluten intolerance, and other specific food allergies. Students with food allergies have all joined us successfully, sharing cooking responsibilities and enjoying customized meals, too. We learn all students’ limitations before the program so we can plan and provision accordingly. If you’d like more information regarding a particular dietary requirement, please contact us.

Picky Eaters

Picky eaters are not uncharted territory for us. We’ve had Sail Caribbean attendees come to our programs with selective food pallets and they have flourished during their time with us. Many of our picky eaters have even dared to step out of their comfort zones and try new dishes, fruits, and vegetables that they took a liking to by the end of their programs!
