Re: First time crewing/racing this weekend

Oh, yes, did we forget to tell you about the "safety talk" that every skipper is supposed to go through and his plan for responding to accidents before leaving the dock....? Oopsie. My guess is that 90% of them don't. Sorry things went hairy for you. It sounded like you got a good dose of a lot of things in one afternoon. Small boat racing can go sideways pretty quickly, especially with inexperienced crew. Keep crewing with different people and you'll get a good sense of what works and what doesn't.
