Not necessary. Crewing with bad captain is just beneficial as with a good captain. You learn from his mistake and what not to do. In fact after crewing for a few times, I created a trip report presentation to all my direct reports reflected on the Leadership. I use the example of being the owner of the boat v. the captain of the boat. Actually I learn a lot about myself and my short comings. I spent two hours with my children and wife show them what to do and not to do.
These are valuable lessons which has taught me how to be a better leader. Damn, i have to wait so long to learn them. But my children are learning with me. They are far ahead of me for their age.
