Captain vs. Cruiser - or How a professional mariner takes a sailing vacation
Kate Hollingsworth (aka Captain Boomies)

Captain Boomies - Kate D
When you’re planning a cruise as a professional mariner, there is a massive list of preparations and responsibilities to master. If you’re a casual weekend boater, that list can be a lot shorter. Let Captain Boomies show you the big list, and then how you can shrink it down since you're not being paid.
Lots of boaters worry that they're not doing enough to prepare or plan their days of cruising, but you don't need as much as you may think. Add some fun back into your sailing by planning adventures instead of intense voyages. 
-Simplified Passage Planning
-Easy weather routing
-Provisioning like you're lazy
-Crew morale
-What to really do in an emergency on the Bay
Plus a few stories about exciting times Kate's had as a professional captain, and how they help her relax when cruising with friends.
