Re: Improving Children's Forum

Good question Brian.

Will have a bit of a think about it.

We certainly got a fair bit of good info from here before we went cruising with the little one. It helped us to figure out how to make it work, and encouraged us that what we were attempting was not complete and utter folly.

Like you said in the other thread, I don't know if there is anything more that YOU can do beyond what you already do to make it happen. I think we all have to do a bit.

I guess practical discussions of what works for people is always good. If we can encourage people to go sailing with their kids whether it be for a day or a year, and give them the information and encouragment to do so confidently and safely that would be something. St Anna, you, Mimsy, Gui and others here all helped me feel like it was something that we could do, and that we should do.

Now if that doesn't work why don't we just post lots of cute pics of kids on boats???

Oh look there's one.....
