Re: Training and Developing Crew
You can give them a book. To keep it easy just say "hey I found this book I liked check it out". Do you always use the same wording, is it let out the main or do you use let out the main sheet? You can also label the boat. Most important do they want to learn to sail or go for a boat ride?
Oh, excellent point ctl411. Consistency is KEY. Always use the same word for everything, until they are up to speed. They'll never learn if you're always changing terminalogy.
Keep things simple.
