Hello we are a family
of four wanting to sail for 18-24 months on a Lagoon
470 mid 2015. Wondering if there are many other sailing families out there with kids
around the 8-13 age?
We are seeking expressions of interest from people around 40+ who might be interested in joining us for some sailing adventures.
Our dream is taking another family
, couple or single
, on board, similar to our own, who can help with housekeeping, light maths instruction and who ideally play either piano, guitar or another string instrument (cello/violin). Our kids
are keen to learn martial arts so if you have the skills that would be a bonus! This is just a wish list not essential
We are not looking for a 'teacher' just someone who likes kids, gets on with people, is kind-hearted, non-competitive and wants to explore our amazing planet! We are clean living and adhere to a natural learning
philosophy, we minimise the kids use of technology (and our own where possible!) in favour of doing real things and meeting real people. Looking for kids with similar values and a sense of calm. We bring our kids up to respect other people as well as themselves, and to be compassionate. Looking for a family who share a similar view. We try and tread lightly on the planet without going overboard! (Sorry I couldn't resist).
Are there any other families who share our outlook, who are keen for a fun adventure in the Med, Caribbean
and crossing the South Pacific
? Accommodation and food
covered, further details to be negotiated depending on situation and finding a good fit for our family.
Light social drinkers and non-smokers essential. Sailing experience is not necessary but would be valued. Hope to hear from you if you think this sounds like you!
