we have recently moved aboard indefinitely with our 2 kids, (8 and 11), and are currently sailing up east coast
. Prior to purchasing
this boat at the end of last year we chartered boats on only 2 occasions, for 2 weeks each, with the kids.
(My husband and I both had sailed on and off, but mainly in trailer sailers and dingys). Prior to last week, neither the kids or myself had had any offshore
experience! But those 2 previous trips in the Whitsundays and Aegean, were momentous for the kids and I in that we learnt so much, primarily that living aboard
is for us, and created amazing memories. In Turkey
we chartered through Aura yachting, near Bodram. They were fantastic, as was condition of the boat and the area for cruising with the kids.
Anyway, if you are not yet confident in your own skills a yacht club will soon sort that out.
cheers and goodluck
