0 kids - all the time in the world for sailing
1 kid - Grap the kid and go
2 kids - Still plenty of time to sail
3 kids - Sail once in a while
4 kids - Read about sailing on a forum and get a stinkpot.
I don't have any kids, but I have a 9year old malamute (60s dog years) who is terrified of sailing, this directly affects the amount of sailing I do. I live aboard so I just can't leave her at home. She was OK with sailing at first but we have run into some nasty weather, 40kt winds blowing against the tide with the accompanying 10-15ft waves in the Straits of Juan De Fuca did the trick. She is now quite happy as long as the boat is tied up.
