Since we don't live in or near a sailing community we do not hear about alot of adventures. We have read some literary literature about these families just doing it with no experience. Okay really our experince is limited. Sailed BVI and out to Anegada which is extremely simple 3 times. Sailed Belize. Sailed Vancouver Island and the islands and also sailed from Vancouver to the Victoria. Will be back in BVI this winter. Our kids have sailed with us for only 7 days once in BC and will again join us in the BVI's this winter. We do not own a boat, we are looking at them. My husband is a huge adventurer and wanted to take this on with our kids before they were to old. I guess the question is now is this really safe?
Thanks for you input so far and I look foward to more.
