I'm pretty much a noob and sailing addict. I followed this advice. I was there early, grabbed the biggest of the bags, went for the mainsail covers and lines before my frothy beverage, brought plenty of beer for others and myself, kept my mouth shut, asked questions when I needed help, didn't talk shit, and never over stated my sailing prowess, help stowe equipment, towed the dolly back off the dock to the lot. Gave the capt solid yes and no answers as to availability. The capt and crew were great sailors and very welcoming of a joey on board, and they gave me some great tips about my sailing and how to become more efficient Got asked back for next tues. thanks for the advice.
