Re: Who pays for the food and beer?

In all of the various skipper training courses available today, I don't think skippers are taught enough about how to relate to their crews.

In my very first race series, in Sabots, a very, very long time ago (yikes!), I chucked my crew overboard within sight of the finish line and let him swim home. I learnt a valuable lesson that day and have never had a crew problem since..
