Sailing Turkey with Kids
Children can learn a lot about life on sea, nature and foreign countries when sailing with their parents or relatives. It is important to keep in mind that they get easily bored and need something for entertainment - swimming, snorkeling or fishing are some of the best activities for them, where they can use up all their energy. Kids are very curious and will probably want to learn something about sailing and explore the boat. Show them the charts and instruments, explain the sails, the wind or make them participate in anchoring. Be sure to follow the safety rules, especially with younger children. On deck, all children need to wear a life jacket and if the weather gets rough, children must go below. However, parent supervision is best.
