Cruising with our 8 year old daughter

Hello,

We are a family that have been cruising for the past couple of months. We have an 8 year old daughter who would love to see and play with other children. We have yet to meet another cruising family. We are currently at Norfolk VA and are heading south to Florida and then to the Bahamas. Are there any other families cruising with kids?

Almost enough to make me wish I could bear Facecrack. We are shoving off next summer with our twin 5 year olds. Will be looking for other "kid" boats crusing Mexico...

It's an unbelievably helpful, and supportive group of women!

If you don't want to join FB just for that, send me an email with your details (departing dates, from where, to where, etc) and I'll post it on the group and relay you any messages. Will PM you my email.

Thanks! A very kind offer. While I generally hate asking people I don't really know to make any effort on my behalf, I may actually take you up on that. I deleted my Facecrack account years ago and don't want to go there again. Too many old "friends" who I was happy not to have to deal with anymore. And if you have an account people seem to get upset if you aren't logging in with some degree of frequency. Too many people addicted to Facecrack that don't understand why you aren't (CF)! Maybe we'll see you guys down there next year, though we'll be taking our time cruising down the coast and probably won't actually be in Mexico till Nov-Dec. 2013.

Re: Cruising with our 8 year old daughter

Hi,
We are cruising to the Bahamas this winter, currently in North Carolina. We have a 9 year old daughter who has lived aboard our catamaran since she was 3. We keep a blog under Makana at sailblogs.com we hope to be in FL in two weeks. Our daughter is always on the lookout for "boat kids".
