Podcast Episode 8: You don’t have to shout!

In this episode, I take a look at shouting and the intimidation techniques often employed by skippers who feel it is OK to speak to their crew in a bullying and disrespectful manner. I uncover how damaging this is not only to the crew but also to the ‘shouter’ & the group dynamic on the boat.

I go to suggest a few tactics that can tone down the abuse and how to get important actions completed without having to resort to verbal abuse. Sailing needs as much new blood and energy as possible in the 21st century- a review of ‘traditional’ communications methods is, in my opinion, long overdue.

Who is the Mariner?

My name is Chris Stanmore-Major better known as CSM. I have over 300,000Nm experience in racing, cruising & expedition sailing and have raced twice around the world. I sailed solo around the world in the Velux 5 Oceans Race in 2011 (in Falcon’s sister ship) becoming the 182nd person ever to circumnavigate alone.

This Podcast channel is for sailors of all skill levels and backgrounds. My passion is seamanship & self-reliance and helping others realize their sailing dreams on their own boats – whatever size or shape of craft that may be.
