Re: Trusting someone to take a watch

I allways give the same 3 pieces of basic advice to a new mate. sailing with a new skipper
I still follow myself.

1 never ask the skipper what he (or She) thinks you should do? (he will think you don't know and lack confidence)

2 Allways tell the skipper what you intend to do.( If he doesn't like it he will tell you)

3 At the first opertunity call the skipper and tell him what is up and what you are doing. you are just letting him know whats going on.( The biggest worry a skipper has is you wont wake him in time)

Its about developing mutual trust.

If he comes on deck.
you should allways be able to tell him
where you are.
when you expect to get to the next alteration.
what any other vessels close by are doing.

when I am the boss it what I looke for.
