Another thing. This year, we instituted a policy of lifejackets after dark. Our personal policy is to wear jackets (inflatables) anytime that we reef. When we put in our first reef, I put on my vest/harness. The crew took that as a queue and donned theirs without a word from me. Their action reinforced to me yet again, that leadership is more about example than command.
