Guys.

Fred wanted to belong and have is own name on Sailnet.

He has been here with me most of the time, reading and helping, and asked so many times for an account...today we decided to let him have one...we're allways affraid of you know what...no need to tell what it is....

Please guys, he's only 9, he speaks a little English, and some of the nautical terms are unkown to him...please treat him nice..he's a sharp kid, and will pick up...

Thank you all

Giu

Welcome Fred, but tell Dad (or you do it) to change the name under you nickname. It's not good to post your full name on the Internet where other's can see it. I know there are some other young sailors on here, so maybe you'll hear from some of them.

Welcome. My son is only 3, but I'll be getting him out this summer when he's 4 to start getting used to sailing. I've got an old wooden pram I'll get him started in.
