Skipper & Hostess

Role of a skipper

Skippers responsibility

Skipper is in charge of driving the boat, but if there are no other crew members on board, his jobs also includes maintaining the boat, making all necessary smaller repairs during the sail, taking care of the paperwork in marinas, transferring the boat from one marina to the other between the charters and other. He can also give you various useful advice, point out some interesting places for you to visit or things to do, answer most of your questions and show you a thing or two about navigating and driving a boat.

Skipper is in charge of driving the boat and taking care of your safety

Overall safety and pleasurable sailing mostly depend on good organisation, assigning duties and good relationship between the guests as well as between the guests and the skipper. Since you’ll be spending at least a week together at the sea, it is important that you compromise and show respect for each other.
Most guests get along great with their skippers and often ask for him/her when they come back next year.

What is your role

When you hire a skipper, remember that you have to save a berth for him and provide his food. Skipper spends most of the time on board and always has a plenty to do, so he doesn’t have much time to cook meals for himself, so you should take care of this – regardless if you are eating on board or dinning out.

If you want your privacy, the skipper doesn’t always have to eat with you. Sometimes he can eat after you, or go to a different restaurant. With skipper you won’t have and trouble finding a common ground, a that is one of the main conditions for pleasant and joyful sail.

Role of a hostess

Hostess responsibility

Primary duties of a hostess are taking care of the cleanliness and tidiness inside of the boat, and, if there is no chef, she is also in charge of preparing meals.

Since there is always lots of work to be done around the boat to keep everything in order, every task must be properly delegated between the crew. So, the tasks of the hostess are vary depending of whether she is the alone on board or with other crew members.

What can hostess do

If you hire only a hostess, she is in charge of keeping the boat tidy, cooking and groceries shopping, making breakfast… In this case, your duty is to navigate the boat and take care of the security of everyone on board as well as the boat itself.

If there is a skipper with the hostess on board, the two of them will take care of most things that must be done. Generally, we could split their tasks: he is managing the exterior, and she is in charge of interior, but that is little blunt. She will help him to anchor in marinas as well as with some minor repairs on the deck (if necessary).

If the hostess is a member of full crew, she is usually not in charge of groceries shopping or any other physical work. She cleans, tidies up the place, sets the table, serves the food… She is also here to answer all of your questions and help you with an advice. She is constantly communicating with the guests and you can ask her if you have any kind of a problem. Hostess are, in the most cases, educated and well informed with the recent events, so they can help you, answer on your questions, and explain lots of things regarding the local rules and traditions.

Your duty is to assure her the place to sleep and provide food.
