Signed up to head out as crew this Sunday for some club racing. I was originally going to race my Flying Scot, but another member wanted crew on their Scot so I figured why not!
If it all fell through I would just go back to my plan on sailing my boat.
Sailing with someone else at the helm is always an adventure. How much are they going to lean on your expertise... their style... if they even know how to race...
I find that going from captain to crew is a delicate balance of listening and suggestions. Since I'll be running the jib, I don't mind telling the helmsman to head off or go up for a lifter. Beyond that I try and not question the strategy too much.
Either way, looking forward to hitting the water
