Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

In some cases, the Captain and Owner are not the same person, even though both are aboard. When this is the case, the owner is often the last to the party. I've always known the true Captain to coordinate the crew, although, the crew certainly was directly involved with preparations. Even if the owner took that title officially, there was always a clear leader among the ranks. Many smart owners I've known, bring along someone more capable than they. It doesn't mean they are necessarily incapable, it clearly means they are smart.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
