True. I noticed that our beer consumption varied inversely to the amount of wind we got.

I agree that the relationship changes somewhat, depending on what "level" of racing you're at. I'm at the bottom. The Very Bottom:

New skipper
Old boat
Green crew

That relationship is probably different from:

Experienced, competitive skipper
Newer (or at least more competitive boat)
Experienced crew
