We've put a lot of miles under the keel together, and we know that keeping them interested in what's going on can be a bit challenging at times. I'd also emphasize Faster's point about teaching them to sail. Take paper charts along, so that they can see where you're going. Get them at the helm.
Good luck.
Sailhog, Can you tell me a little more about your boat?
Have you been happy with it or what would you like different?
