Greetings from Estonia/US/Spain

Hi everyone! I am an adventurous homeschooling mom to two children (6 & 8). I was born and raised in the US but have Estonian roots, and we have been living in Estonia for the past 3 years.

I lived on a sailboat years ago in the SF Bay, but never did much sailing. I've always had a bit of a travel bug, and recently have been longing to get out to sea again.

I keep finding these blogs from sailing families and would love to be able to discover and show my girls the world by boat.

Welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the Forum.
A great place and the sea is great for kids.

We'll be in Estonia twice this summer, in the first weeks of August.

Re: Greetings from Estonia/US/Spain

Hello and Welcome Aboard the Forum!

If you look down at the very bottom of the page (using a typical browser) you will see some similar threads with Estonia in the titles, including some introductions (in the past) by other Estonian sailors.

Also, there is a social group (a sub forum on this site) whose members are cruising with children:

Cruising with Kids Group (58 members)
Cruisers & Sailing Forums - Cruising with Kids

I think taking kids on a cruise would be a wonderful thing to do for a family and a great opportunity for the children.

Good luck making your dream come true.
