Re: Books to get kids interested in sailing?

There's a cute book called 'Adrift', bout some kids learning to sail a dinghy.. not sure if this is correct link...Adrift | Canadian Children's Book Centre

Also 'Kids for Sail':
Another treat for new readers, about adventurous kids but not really sailing, is the "Adventure series" by Enid Blyton.. interesting, too, in the British terminology used, esp for NA kids. The Adventure Series with Jack, Philip, Dinah, Lucy-Ann, and Kiki the parrot

It's great having kids on board who like to read for those longer legs, and wet, grey days.


1984 Fast/Nicholson 345 "FastForward"

".. there is much you could do at sea with common sense.. and very little you could do without it.."
Capt G E Ericson (from "The Cruel Sea" by Nicholas Monsarrat)
