All of our kids started sailing way before they were 4.
On deck up until 5 or so they have to wear a PFD and
be in a harness. We also make sure that they are watched by an adult that's NOT the helmsman.
Saw a "keep it under 5 kts" comment - we definitely do NOT do that-
Lee rail awash and flying, the little ones get used to that pretty quick.
