Re: We did it! We took our 3 week old sailing today!

Not sure about the US but I don't think there's a mandatory 'wear lifejacket' legally up here... aside from the practical good sense of it...

It's easier to take your little admiral sailing now than when he's starting to get around on his own.. Good on ya for starting early. I'm sure he'll grow out of the 'soothing motor syndrome'.

Our son's sailing memories go back to before he remembers.. (we beat you by 3 days!) and he treasures them still.. and has his daughter on the same program.
