Re: Info. for Guests Aboard

I email a sailing instruction for each outing with timelines, packing lists, meal plans, crew mainfest, navigation notes, and other pertinent info. When new folks come on board, I give an orientation/safety brief that covers using the head, location of safety gear, PFDs, bilge pumps, Mayday calls (I keep a laminated MAYDAY call format to refer to), and what to do if I go overboard. About half the folks read the sailing instruction. We also have a detailed SOP onboard that covers standing orders, how to use everything on board, and so on.
