Kids sailing without being able to swim

Conventional wisdom has it that swimming ability precedes seamanship. On the other hand, PFDs are originally designed as aids, not flotation substitutes. This stands for children and adults alike. Hence, my intervention is meant to push you to another direction: you canít believe how easily and fast kids learn swimming Ė I personally admired my eldest daughterís swimming endeavours at the age of six Ö until my youngest one proved a real dolphin when she was just four years old! Isnít it true that if you combine swimming knowledge with sailing skills, then you can fully enjoy being the master at sea?
