Learn to Sail
There are many opportunities to Learn to Sail, whilst your children are sailing. Why should they have all the fun?
For the light or no wind days, Stand Up Paddleboarding is another fun way to get on the water
Another challenging form of sailing is windsurfing where your body is essentially part of the rig. It is challenging but very rewarding and opens up a world of opportunities
