And how many of us take our kids out on such performance boats... or do we bore them to tears on cruising monohulls flying at... maybe... 8 knots surfing?

How many tow your kids at speed in an inflatable or such off the stern?

How many of us take the kids out in small boats, the very best place to learn?

My kid's spent hours getting towed at double digits speeds and she's seen 20 knots while on sheet watch. We've flipped small boats. And she doesn't think sailing is boring.

Of course, I'm not ready for kite surfing....
