Does anyone simulate charter conditions before the season starts, how do you prepare crew for a busy charter???? Charlatans tend come unglued when their tested under fire and it’s always interesting to see who can and who can’t when it is go time. Engineers that fair well in port flounder when their at sea, stewardesses start whaling when they work more than 8 hours, deckhands fish for hiding holes when they are tired, chefs get crabby when workloads increase and captains blow up like puffer fish when everything turns to mustard.

What type of simulation do you porpoise to stop Crew's legs turning to jellyfish when the carp hits the fan coral?

With all the posting of issues and problems and situations in the yachting world, i'd like to see if there is any interest in a group telecall to discuss issues and maybe come away with some new perspectives and insights. I would set that up and moderate it if the interest is out there. Contact me at if interested.
