We head out to the sailing club on Sunday not sure if there would be any wind. Well it turned out to he decent. I rig the boat and ask my 6 year old daughter if she wants to go. "No thanks, I am playing". So I go out. Later I come back by and call out " you want to come now?" No response and I make a short loop. Come back by and my wife is waving at me. Isabella decided she wanted to come an had swam out to the dock but I never saw her. So, I turn around and go pick her up. She preceded to tell me she was the Captain. And then started singing a made up song about Hobie Sailing. One of the best days I have had. Finally got her to go out with me and she had a blast. ImageImage

dont say anything about the sails!!!! The wind was coming from straight ahead, and had just shifted again. Launching is aways fun, narrow space with a huge weed bed on one side and a "T" dock on the other..........

Awesome!!!! My daughter started sailing with me at about that age. She's almost 20 now and, by far, the best crew I've ever had. We've done tons of regattas and day sails over the years, and still get some in here and there. Great times! Even got her a H-14 of her own a few years ago (which is a total blast for me, too, in heavy air). Carry on.....raise 'em right!
