When I think about my involvement with kids in sailing or Grandpa Dan’s or Stephanie’s, it is encouraging to see a similar theme. Keep kids having fun and keep them involved. Have tasks big or small for anyone to accomplish and feel good about accomplishing. Sailing is a lifetime sport; a unique recreation that one can enjoy for many, many years. Stephanie adds, “The friends, relationships, and skills that kids develop in sailing at a young age will last them a lifetime!” It is a complete education sport with its physical and mental demands. This allows youth to grow and expand their knowledge base. I fully think kids in sailing is a form of creative art. Where else or what else allows kids to participate where there are no boundaries, no walls, no sidelines. Sailing for kids, be it cruising or racing is freedom. It is joyful.
