hi

We embarked on a program of learning to sail and then gaining family sailing experience.Our plan from the start has been for the "training" to culminate in a year-long sailing trip when Tim and Emily are 12 and 10 years old. We're still on track.

Hi turbulicity! We have a 6 and 8 years old boys and we also live aboard here in Westpoint harbor. We try to go out whenever the weather and time is in our favor. We would like to get to know you guys and go sailing, so let us know when you are going out so maybe we can hookup and go sailing.
PM usl if you are interested.

That is so funny. We were actually a few hours late getting off the dock, so they probably could have gotten ahold of us. Living aboard with kids was so awesome for us, but cruising with kids has been 100x better.

Live aboard parents or cruising parents, please reach out to us, we would love to broaden our community!

Hi, I love the thread. We are in a similar situation, minus our own boat. Luckily I volunteer for an organization that lets me take the family out on our program boats regularly. We have a few kids and are looking to live aboard for an extended cruise soon. My wife and I both have offshore sailing experience on sail training vessels. Too bad you're across the country. We'd love the chance to meet up and sail with other families. Best of luck getting on the water. It is a lot of work keeping the little ones put, but I'm hoping they will remember the experiences and love it when they are older.

Hello naturalivin,
I´d rather send a private message to you but I´m afraid you won´t receive it because you need 20 posts until you are allowed to use this tool - therefore posting here is my only chance to contact you.
You said you are volunteering for an organization that lets you take out the family on their program boats. Our organization is trying to find partners for a children sailing project, we tried this in SailNet but we were not successful until now. I may invite you to have a look at our own thread. Maybe you can help us to make contacts to organization(s) with similar interests?
We have found some partners in Europe already, but only in german speaking areas.
So please have a look at:
children sailing project - an invitation
Thank you -
and have a wonderful Christmas time with your kids and family!

Turb, four is a great age to start hauling lines. One great thing about a sail boat is there is never a shortage of "jobs" to do. I had my 3 and 5 year old tacking the jib on our Hobie 18 this summer just to have them hauling on lines. Turned out by the end of summer little miss 5 yo was steering and tacking the boat herself. Just a reminder to keep the little ones involved. It will help them learn to love it. She knows it the "one day" plan and asks regularly when we can move into a boat. I think we've got her going in the right direction.

Re: Looking for sailing partner parents

I see that this is an old thread and I tried searching for recent action/posts from some of you but didn't find anything of relevance. Anyhoo.. My wife, 9 month old and I are in the process of moving into a liveaboard status in the SF Bay area and I'd love to read more on the specifics in this area.
Our lease in Santa Rosa is up at the end of September and we're going to 'cruise' around in our Westy for as long as it takes for somebody to take an offer we put on a 33-39 ft sailboat.
Is anyone from this thread still active and living in the SF area? We're going to need to meet some sailing buddies!

Re: Looking for sailing partner parents

We are still here. I am now more experienced than I was two years ago, and my kid is 4 years old. I have just started taking him out on boats, with mixed results. He likes kayaks and rowboats, but fell asleep the one time I took him out on a hunter 31. message me if you want to co-charter a boat or need people to sail with.
