Cruising Kids

Hi Folks,
Over the winter my son and I have been working on a website to help cruising/traveling kids to keep in touch with each other.

It's a Facebooky kind of thing for Kids who are sailing, travelling or living in interesting places, also for the friends they meet along the way...........

It's free to join and free to use (no ads either!).



They can:
  • Write a blog
  • Create Photo Albums
  • Connect with Friends
  • Live Chat
  • Share Videos
  • Messaging
  • And more
You know it's sometimes hard to meet boats with kids onboard, they might be just around the corner in another bay, but you wouldn't know. If your children do find friends how easy is it for them to keep in touch?

Sometimes sailing can be a lonely experience for our kids. we wanted to create a space for them to express themselves and share their experiences and perhaps to help us all hook up somewhere down the line...................

If you know of any kids who might be interested please PM me and I'll give you details of how to get them started.

Cheers,

Crispin.

That's a great site, I'll join up myself as we need all the help we can get RE home schooling!

However, we feel ours is a little more 'kid' rather than 'family' centered.

Thanks for the link though.
