About

This is a site by Trev and Lucas, who own Apriori.

The site includes information about racing and sailing, and all things that come along with owning a yacht – cruising, maintenance, entertaining, cooking, problems, troubleshooting and more. If there’s anything else you want us to include, just get in touch with us.

The Sailing section is divided into Racing and Cruising. Click ‘Sailing’ in the menu above to see all Sailing related articles, or click the sub headings to see subject-specific articles.

We both love cooking, and we both believe that just because you are on a boat doesn’t mean you need to eat poor-quality meals. There is a rule aboard Apes, and that is we do not do spaghetti bolognese. Not because we don’t like it, but because everyone else does it on their boat

Click on the category of ‘Cooking’ for all posts about cooking, or drill down on the sub-menus for specific information.

Each of the recipes will fall into one or more of five, broad, categories:

  • Inshore racing: Generally handheld food or “Railmeat” food (defined as passed along the rail to the crew, served hot or cold depending on the conditions).
  • Offshore racing: Frozen meals (either cryovacced or in foil tins to go in oven). Meals are cooked ashore and taken onto the boat packed.
  • Inshore cruising: Assumes that you have the ability to access fresh produce and are cooking aboard.
  • Offshore cruising: assumes cooking aboard when the weather is reasonable
  • Pushing the boat out: Just showing off to those who think you need a big kitchen to cook amazing food.
