Re: bareboat charter with our 1 year old - sleep advice
Thanks rasputin! We've taken our lo (now 14mths) bareboat twice in the BVI at 4 months and the Grenadines at 12 months. We stuck the Phil and Ted's in one of the cabins. Our issue was that she crashes at 7pm but we need the galley for cooking in addition to the bbqing we do in the cockpit. On the charters there aren't usually curtains on all the windows in the saloon or galley which would trigger too early wake up for our lo too.
When your low was going to bed each evening in the saloon how did you manage for dinners? When we charter our style is we keep all the fun on the boat. We are going again in Dec. We manage to get away from our ft jobs and sail 4x a year more or less so we hope that's good enough for our lo to grow up sailing. When your lo hit walking/running/climbing and tips while under sail and then on anchor? We never stay on a slip. Ours started at 13 mths so next trip will be a whole new experience - for fun and safety measures. All tips are welcome!!! Apologies for any typos!!
