KIDS

My suggestion would be to keep the sailing (and motoring) to a minimum but use the boat to quickly (no more than 30 - 45 minutes) get to an anchorage where your children can play on the beach , swim , mess about in the dinghy, fish for crabs etc. With kids aged 2 and 4 you are kidding yourself if you think they will enjoy the sailing part. Get them to enjoy using the boat for activities they think are fun and in time you''ll know when to extend the cruising part and explore anchorages further afield. When your kids are old enough - say 6-8 enroll them in a sailing school so they learn to sail small boats - you''ll then have keen crew until boyfriends / girlfriends appear on the scene!
