Sailing with small children

Oh, dear, MaryBeth...did I sound like some party animal that was annoyed that my kids were going to ruin my sailing fun???!!! Far from it! I want my kids to enjoy the sailing experience, but am worried that they will be bored. Just wanted to hear from those "that have been there" for some reassurance, I guess.

I want the whole family to have fun together, but I don''t want to be worried about my 2-year-old going overboard the whole trip...that would be fun for no one!

If you only knew how much I enjoy spending time with my children...then perhaps you would have worded your response differently. I would never even think of leaving them behind so that I could "live it up" on the sailboat without them!

Just wanted to hear those who have had some experience with this...it is all new to me. I guess I was envisioning it like a long car trip for little kids who would keep asking me "When do we get there?"..but obviously that thinking was very wrong!
