Competent Crew

A good watch-keeping rota will
prevent the crew being alone,
tired and cold at night
A good skipper won’t wait until
nightfall when everyone is already tired
They will share out duties to make
sure they have rest, suitable meals
Wear life jackets
Do not overload the boat
Climb in and out with care
Only make a mayday call if
there is grave and imminent danger
Give the name of your vessel
the position in latitude and longitude
the number of people on board
And the nature of your distress.
