Newsflash: little girls like sailing with their daddys


I’m thinking about getting a small 2 person boat (like a JY15) that I can handle with my daughter. The club I’ve just joined has 420’s, so we might fool around with those first. Either way, I talked to my wife about this, and she made a valid point – My daughter likes sailing because she’s sailing with me. I’m not distracted by cell phones, etc. She has my undivided attention (along with mother nature, but you know what I mean) while we’re on the boat. At some point she’ll want to steer, and like my dad did with me, I’ll pass the tiller on. I’ll let her try her hand at racing (with me as crew) when she’s ready. I feel that if she chooses to sail in high school, experience sailing a two person dingy will trump pram experience. Plus, we’ll have a lot more fun.
