Sailing with family makes a great way to spend some quality active time with your loved ones. It also has all the potential and ingredients needed to turn into the most amazing family adventure! What better way to reconnect with your close ones than spending some fun time together on a sailing boat, exploring unique destinations, sharing new experiences and creating memorable memories.
During the process of planning a sailing holiday, there are some things you should have in mind.
Picking the perfect boat for yourselves is one of those things. While for families with bigger kids there is no significant difference, catamarans prove to be one of the best options for families travelling with smaller kids. Catamarans are more stable and spacious and generally have more room for the kids to actively explore or sit down, relax and engage in some of their favourite activities like drawing, colouring and reading. One of the advantages would also be the trampoline net between the hulls. The children often find them a great spot for hanging out relaxing and sunbathing.
The other thing you should have in mind the choice of the sailing area and sailing route. When sailing with kids it is best to make shorter sailing distances and also, whenever possible, make occasional stops for them to swim and run around on the beach or take a walk and a scoop of ice cream in a destination along the route. This will help to keep your kids happy and entertained during the sail. With its archipelago of over a 1000 islands, Croatia is a great choice for family sailing as the distances between the islands and bays are quite short and it is known as one of the safest sailing destinations of the world.
Our next advice would be to bring cards or board games along with you! They make for a fun way to rebond with your kids and spend some quality, uninterrupted time together away from the screens. You can also prepare them some fun activities for the moments you would like to relax on the deck and quietly gaze at the wonderful surrounding laying in front of you.
New destinations to discover and new adventures to experience together will bring you closer together as a family and help in creating happy memories that will stay with you for the rest of your lives. So, what are you waiting for? Book a sailing holiday and enjoy in the perfect combination of magical Dalmatian archipelago and the most amazing company of your loved ones.
