Re: A family day... what do sailors do?
We were fortunate enough to be running a two boat program.. when our teen was less keen on going cruising 3 weeks with the old farts, we let him take the smaller boat.. now he can invite 3 friends, and it's 'race on' every day. We kept most of the food to ensure they'd be with us at the end of the day...
... I gotta say we never flew our spinnaker so much as that summer!
