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': http://www.amazon.ca/Kids-For-Sail-Pamela-Bendall/dp/0920501494
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.
