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.....

Great looking kiddo!

I would love to set this up such that we get a lot more cruising boats or LA (Live Aboards) with kids that feel comfortable posting in this forum and that would help set up meets and stuff, and WNW suggested.
