Wife puts us in and out of slip, makes me jump to and from the dock, so if anyone slips, "I" get wet! I do most of the sail trim if DH'ing. Especially racing, she tillers, I handle sheets etc. If on a longer daysail, cruise to place etc, she likes to get the feel of the boat initially, then turns the tiller over to me. Takes over the tiller to tack or gybe, altho I can do this myself, easier with two of us!

Must be why I am referred to as the cabin boy, she the admiral! Even tho I have many many more miles/hrs of sailing than she, not to mention building two sailboats as a teen.........


She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
