Guiletta Said: "I also use different colour sheets because we have a lot of ropes and makes it easy to identify when racing.
Sometimes we loose the professional look and instead of saying :
quick, release the port sheet, fast, (and get an answer like huuuu which one???)"
I did the same 20 years ago because my wife couldn't tell her Port from her Merlot. I used Red and Blue. Then I realized she was color blind to Blue and Green. (Traffic lights where fun, too.) I finally resorted to Left and Right. Later, she resorted to staying home...hence I became a solo sailor. Now I don't have to shout commands....just talk to myself a lot.
