2021 is going to be the fourth year going on five as a J70 boat owner, captain.
Many of the things that I thought were correct when I bought Escape proved to be wrong. I wanted a more democratic boat with crew ownership of their tasks. I found out that there can only be one captain on a sailboat and that I needed better standards on who may sail with me. A person who wants to sail is not good enough. Sailboat racing is an extreme sport with rules. People get hurt, boats get damage.
There are so many articles about how to sail a boat, not many on managing those who sail with you.
I am an MBA. Over the next few months, I plan on putting my thoughts down on crews and running a J70. I hope to implement them over time.
