Planning to Cruise - early 2017

Hi All,

As an introduction....We sailed the BC coastal waters for 10+ years on our '84 Endurance 35'. That was before kids. We now have two boys (10 & 12) who we want to introduce the lifestyle to. We are doing a complete refit of our Endurance, plan to sell her (unfortunately she's not big enough) and we are going offshore next year. Looking into boats, homeschooling etc. etc.

Question...does anyone have some advice on good Canadian homeschooling/distance education programs to use while off shore and how did you deal with the residency requirements of many programs. I looked into Keystone (too expensive unfortunately) and I looked into Navigate (have to be in the province for at least a part of each year.) I'd like the option of having them able to return back to school once we return...if ever.

At this point it looks like we may start our travels in the Caribbean. I wonder how the internet access is these days. Is it feasible to do an online program or do we need to look at a correspondence paper based program?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.
