i just got my day skipper
I don't know if I am writing on the correct forum.
We are a family
of 6. Kids
aged 12, 10, 7 and 5 and we are chartering a boat for a week this summer in Mallorca. I have my day skippers licence but am concerned about a few things where I am struggling to find good resource.
My two primary concerns are as follows:
1) early in the morning when everyone is asleep, or indeed during the night, how do I ensure that none of my kids
wander up on deck
? I understand that briefing them in the first instance is critical but are there any particular tricks, systems to ensure that I am alerted if one of the children
tries to go up on deck
while myself and my wife are asleep. Of particular concern are my 5 (particularly inquisitive) and 7 year olds.
2) somewhat paranoid I know but if we are on a pontoon or pier by night, how best to manage the security
of the boat particularly in relation to someone wandering on board, one always being conscious of the security
of ones children
Thanking you in Advance.
