Re: Who pays for the food and beer?

I think it really depends on the skill level of your crew. I would love to crew on some races, but since I have no racing experience, I would bring beer/snacks enough for myself and some extra. But if I were an experienced racer, and was grinding the winches and what not it seems only fair that you provide the snacks and refreshments.

I never won a "who's right," but not stopping may explain my singledom! I sometimes have a hard time learning. But on the positive side I drink mostly quality local brew.

So if your wining races due to an experienced crew it is really quite cheap labor if all you pay is beer and chips!
