Anyone who says thanks by way of offering to help out with the next antifoul will not only be always welcome aboard...I think I would write them into my will and place them first in my life...behind the boat of course

This one is easy my boat, my riules.

If I want to launch at 9:00AM I tell everyone 8:30. I also tell them I will not wait. Basically I build in a 30 minute buffer. I have never told anyone my strategy and I have rarely, other than for mechanical reasons, launched late.

So far this works. The skipper has never waited for crew and I think we have left someone behind only once.

We had another boat in our club that was chronically late for twilight races. They actually postponed the race a couple of times for this boat. We got together and complained vociferously and now if they are late, they are late.

yep, I think you can also send a card, together with some pics, which could best recall the beautiful memories on boat.

Having never been invited aboard (do I smell?) I had no idea what to offer!

After speaking to MarkJ I realise all sailers are alcoholics (or thats just the impression I got from him lol) so a crate of beer for the captain is a must.

I spoke to my partner who thinks that paying for dinner at the local marina is also the right thing to do.

So heres my offer: A crate of bud/fosters/tesco's own/a bottle of white lightning* and a meal for the captain on me

Any takers? lol

*delete as appropriate
