Organizing Crew

One of the biggest tasks I have had to face is finding crew, organizing and training them. I finally feel like we are on the verge of becoming a good crew able to compete at the next level. The key to the next phase will be practice, practice and then more practice.

I think it is time to sit down and define clear roles and tasks within the crew. Over the winter I will try and organize some crew events to keep in-touch and review videos etc. (while drinking rum of course!) and plan together the next season.

I have read a number of articles in the past about crew organization and tasking. I will review and post thoughts on this. One key element will be start to parse out the tasks of crew chief. Responsibilities will most likely include arranging practice times and dates as well as developing a practice regimen to work on our weak areas.

Love boating? The sun in your face. The smell of the water. The adventure that awaits you.

Nothing matches the feel of pulling into the open water, cutting a break at just the right angle or the sight of your buddy nodding back his confidence that there is some fun to be had out there.

Bayliner Discovery - a new line of runabouts, cuddys and cruisers - transforms boating trips into journeys and gives you the freedom to roam and explore. Take a look for yourself at Bayliner's new journey-based website, This is the place to go to fall in love with boating all over again...or for the first time. Bayliner Discovery doesn't shove boats and specs at you; it lures you into an affair with nature.

Log on and join Motor Boating Magazine's Managing Editor John Wooldridge and his buddy Ken Nicholson as they challenge a new Bayliner Discovery 246 Cruiser in the Pacific chop from San Diego to Catalina Island and on through Channel Islands National Park to Santa Barbara.

Along the way, these two embark on a dusty buffalo safari, kayak near sea caves on island shores and meet some of the local characters. "We traveled on our own terms and experienced everything from the colorful culture of Catalina Island to the breathtaking beauty of Channel Islands National Park," says Wooldridge. "The Bayliner Discovery 246 was our little magic carpet."

The hardtop cockpit on the Bayliner Discovery 246, the largest towable boat in the Bayliner Discovery line, protected Wooldridge and Nicholson from the spray of the choppy Pacific, while its other features made their journey a dream. "We managed to smooth out the worst parts with the boat's trip tab system, and the dual prop gave us an increased grip on the water," says Wooldridge. "The MerCruiser 350 MAG let us plow through everything the ocean threw at us without using the full engine potential."

On, the surprisingly cool navigation of the site transports you to webisodes of Wooldridge's voyage, trip journals, planning links and, yes, Bayliner Discovery boats (but in very thoughtful and complete way).

The folks at Bayliner Discovery promise three more video journeys with top-notch travelers and journalists in the months ahead. National Geographic writer and world-class kayaker Jon Bowermaster is said to be next in line later this fall, using a Bayliner Discovery 288 Cruiser - a best-in-class, two-level mini-yacht - to navigate the stunning inlets and craggy coastline of the Maine Island Trail.
