Re: Sailing with friends for a week, expenses?
Like a few others have said, if I'm inviting friends to go cruising, all boat costs are my responsibility(fuel, dockage/moorings, etc.) I'll provide all anticipated meals aboard as well as an appropriate supply of snacks, beer, wine and liquor. I'll usually get a bottle or two of a nice rum or scotch and cigars for a special dinner. Naturally, others will also show up with their own booze and food which I'll never turn down. Onshore, if I'm hosting at my club or a club being accessed through my reciprocity, I will pick up the tab. When dining elsewhere, I have no problem paying but more often than not, someone else will have stepped up. If it's another person's club, they will usually pay. If we do touristy stuff, we'll usually split the costs(or someone else pays as I usually don't initiate that sort of thing). I may go cruising for a week and take care of 80% of the expenses but ultimately, it all comes out even, someone will inevitably come through with an invitation to a ski house or some tickets to a hot sporting event or a nice case of something brown at my birthday or Christmas.
