Re: Sailing with children

Looks like around 120 NM rhumb line.. Don't know the area so it will depend on the prevailing conditions and likely point of sail.. we've done that distance in a dawn to dusk marathon before, but that likely wouldn't fly with kids.. even my wife had had enough quite a few miles before we dropped the hook.

There must be all kinds of destinations along that route.. do it in 4-5 days in smallish 20-30 NM hops, taking time to do beachcombing and other interesting things for the kids in between. Here in BC we can spend 8 weeks on board and not get more than 150 NM from home!!...
