Crew: Really most useful to be able to -
- solo tack, jibe, reef the main, handle hanked foresails, all in F4, on a 20 foot+ sailboat. This does not mean soloing - it indicates you have the basics.
- confidence walking the decks (many sailors are trained to be fearful & not leave the cockpit)
- rows with skill & power.
