My husband and I crewed for the first time, we are new sailors, trying to figure out the spinnaker and spinnaker pole with a captain who screamed at us every time we did something incorrectly or every time we had to do something, come to think of it.

At first, I thought I enjoyed it, but looking back, I would never crew for him again. Which is good, as he hasn't asked us. :)

I would crew again, but I would ask around and see if the captain is a screamer. If so, NO WAY. I can't think when being screamed at, and really, it's a race, not a trip to the ER, there is no reason for such hysterics unless we are about to flip or sink. Would be much more careful about who we got on a boat with. He knew we were new.
