Oh I forgot to ask if anyone or you ra ra Rasputin bother with the toddler car seat? That might work too rigged while under sail but wondering if we should bother.

Re: bareboat charter with our 1 year old - sleep advice

Here is my feedback after a couple months with our 14 month old in the new boat. She is also a runner/climber and hates to be restricted. We were using the pack and play on the dinette while sailing, but she discovered this weekend that while on a starboard tack, it leans the pack and play enough that she can climb out! We just caught her in time before she took a dive onto the port settee. So, pack and play is now out and we are going to run a jack line and harness her in when in the cockpit. Down below we are just child proofing and letting her run a bit free. The car seat is a non starter as she wants to be mobile. For some reason she loves it in the car, but not in the boat.

For sleeping, we were able to fix up the vberth for her and her sister so that it works great but it is our boat and we could modify it. I am interested in what other ideas folks have as we may be doing a charter this winter ourselves and ideas sure help.

Re: bareboat charter with our 1 year old - sleep advice

Well... I guess or sailing approach with Maddie depends on who is with us, where we are and the weather / condition of the seas. More often than not, if Iím doing aggressive, maximum speed, race style sailing, Iím with buddies and Maddie isnít there. If she is with us, tacks are mild and few and weíre usually cruising without heavy healing.

Same here. The benefit of being in LA means Maddie eats everything and can sleep thru city noise.
