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

Fantastic. We took my out for the first time when he was 10 days old. Same deal, strapped in his car seat... He's 12 now, an avid dinghy sailor and love sailing our 40.5 hunter. He's as comfortable on the boat as he is on land. Such as great life skill your kid will have. I've attached a picture of him sailing my friend's 42 jeanneau in a gale (32 knots) and lovin' it -- that was in Seattle in March earlier this year - great to be raising sailing babies. ;-)
