Smile Hello from Sicily

My name is Kerry, I have just joined this forum. For the last two years I have been cruising in the Med, with my husband and my two children aged 16 and 14. We are currently wintering our North Wind 56 sail yacht in Marina di Ragusa in Sicily and are so far having a wonderful time. Would love to have contact with any other cruisers with teenage children on board. We are orginally from New Zealand and plan on the next few years to sail our way back home.

Re: Hello from Sicily

Ciao Kerry
Welcome to CF .
Friends of ours are in Ragusa Marina for the winter. Sounds like there is a good mixture of liveaboards there this year.
No kids on board our boat, but I am sure someone will chime in. Maybe post your query in the "Cruising with Children" section. Double click on "Forums" to see the full list of forums. It is under "Captain and Crew".

Re: Hello from Sicily

Hi Kerry and welcome to CF. What passports are you travelling on and how are you getting around the Schengen regs?

When I was a boy my momma would send me down to the corner store with $1 and I would come back with 5 potatoes, 2 loaves of bread, 3 bottles of milk, a hunk of cheese, a box of tea and 6 eggs. Can't do that now, too many f**kn security cameras.
