Re: Who pays for the food and beer?

I always end up buying the beer. It doesn't matter if we're racing my boat or I'm crewing on another boat. Someone will text me "are you bringing the ballast" and of course I reply with a yes.

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

Yep. I remember a real drifter - the SMSA Sharps Island Race I think - that drove that home. We had all the weight to leeward and one light weight person handing up sandwiches and beer. NO ONE moved for fear of slowing down the boat. We'd been chasing one boat for three or four hours during which we gained about 10 feet over a mile or so. Suddenly their sails dropped, engine started, and they spun around. Waving as they passed us heading back to Solomons they shouted "we ran out of beer!"

sail fast and eat well, dave

Re: Who pays for the food and beer?

This is something that should be set up beginning of season. On our boat the skipper provided the drinks, and the crew, on a rotational basis, bought the food.

Real beer doesn't come in a 30-pack. :-)

I'm going to dissagree with that statement. If it's brewed it's beer...or soy sauce

Pabst Blue Ribbon baby, in my house it is either PBR or it is something good, preferably an IPA or some other hoppy variety. I don't see there is any need for in between. PBR are good in the heat and sun though, a good IPA in the sun, will tend to put you under.

And wine comes in a box... but you wont catch me drinking it... 30 packs are for coeds and nascar races...Yes I am a beer snob...Its quality over quantity...There are soo many quality beers available today, why would someone elect to purchase swill in a can... Good thing about our Wed night races, there are a few good beers on tap at the yacht club bar.. And as part of the crew, I am more than happy to buy a pitcher or two...The skipper/owner is already providing a boat and covering all the expenses of racing...I get to sail, race for the cost of a couple of pitchers of beer...That is a bargain in my book..

Re: Who pays for the food and beer?

maybe it's southern hospitality, but down here, skipper/owner provides food, drinks, beer, rum on boat plus buys wrist bands for food & drinks at awards party in addition to providing hotel room if needed.
And if I run into him or his son at the yacht club, they always invite me join them for drinks & meal.

Re: Who pays for the food and beer?

Southern hospitality?

Up here in New England, the host always has a fresh change of clothes laid out in your cabin. Complementary bathrobes with the yacht's name embossed on them. Nice dry slippers for your feet. And usually souvenir foulies that you can take home if you've needed to wear them. (You know, if you don't take them home, someone is going to have to dispose of those used clothes anyhow.)

Which is not to mention these "of course they couldn't really be Cuban" (wink-wink) cigars offered with the port and brandy.
