The Caribbean is a sailor’s dream, with its steady breezes, beautiful islands, and fascinating history. Sailing as a family only makes the experience richer. But how do you keep kids occupied on and off the boat? How can you keep them tuned in to their unique surroundings? This book answers those questions and more. It’s intended as a resource for sailing families of all types, whether you're kicking back during a week-long charter, setting sail on the adventure of a lifetime, or hosting the grandkids on your liveaboard during their school vacation.
Covering topics from entertainment to education and safety to social skills, this book contains a wealth of information for first-time sailors and old hands alike. One special section covers the top family sailing destinations and activities in the British Virgin Islands, while another addresses highlights of the Eastern Caribbean. Sailors who set their sights on other cruising grounds will find that the principles of engaging and educating sailing children described in this book can be applied anywhere in the world.
