We're a family
of 5 (plus the dog makes 6!) looking to go cruising in the next 18 months or so if we can get prepared in time. Would love to hear from others that want to sail or are sailing especially from those with kids
onboard. Ours are currently 10 and 7, we also have a 17 year old who will only join us for a month here and there but not the whole trip - he'll be 19 when we leave and busy doing his own thing. We already home-school the younger 2 so no dramas there. We are not experienced sailors by any means but are really looking forward to the freedom and the myriad of amazing experiences travelling will give us. Hubbie is currently looking at a Leopard
47' but I am not sure that's going to be big enough for a long trip...we're considering taking some like minded crew mates with us that have kids
similarly aged so extra space is definitely a priority! Thanks for reading this - drop us a line would love to hear your stories or plans.
