• Communicate clearly. • Stay calm and confident. • Promote fairness and listen to the crew (treat them with respect). • Cheerfully available at all times, whenever called. • Act decisively. By giving responsibility to a crewmember, it relieves some of the skipper’s duties, but more importantly it helps crew quickly become part of the team. Part of the skipper’s job is to explain and teach, it is important for other members of the crew to be able to tackle particular jobs.Then if something needs doing in a stressful situation they will not be doing it for the first time under pressure, when something is very likely to go wrong.
