Safety first. And the best way to make it safe is to get all the potential fear out of the way.
Show them the boat, let them talk to the skipper about the rules while sailing and while you are anchored, take them to the cabins, show them the interesting way of flushing the toilet, etc.
Teach them where to sit – they should be on the bow during sailing and only accompanied by an adult. They should also learn how to lower themselves into the sea with the help of a ladder.
Living on a boat is essentially fun for them!
The boat you are renting should also have a safety net along the deck. Every child must have a life vest of appropriate size. They must try it on and wear it during sailing until you and them get comfortable with being on a boat.
As for any type of summer vacation, the sun is your biggest frenemy. Use waterproof lotions with high protection factors and ensure physical protection from the sun.
Bring along appropriate clothing and footwear for the boat, swimming, and colder nights.
We are sure that you are aware of the fact that you should buy a sufficient amount of groceries. Since we will provide you with a route, you have the ability to see if the stops for that day have a grocery store or not.
Remind them to drink water more than other days!
