Re: Who pays for the food and beer?

rama, if you're racing in LIS, good crew are hard to find and reliable crew much harder to find. Having a rep as a "too generous" captain is just going to help you get and keep better crew, which should translate into better racing.

What's the "right" amount for a birthday present?

And should you break out the good scotch for a bbq or dinner party?

I'd never expect the captain to be the caterer, but I have to admit it is nice when that happens.

Too generous is a relative thing, if making the wife happy creates a problem on the boat...well...You pays your money, you takes your chances.
