Baby on board!
Saronic – 18/06/2010
Me and my husband, we decided to spend a week sailing around Saronic during June 2010. We are familiar with the area as we have sailed there quite a lot of times, but we could not sail far away this year as we had one passenger more: our 8 months baby! Sailing with a baby was some a decision as we had to carry on board so many things (dippers, milk, cream, fruits etc). We had also to dock in a port every day for fresh fruits and meat. No mention about looking after the baby all the time! My husband had to sail almost single handed, but we survived! The baby reacted quite well as he was sleeping almost every time we were sailing and crying every time we had to anchor! This was not so bad, as so many people volunteered to help us with the ropes! If you try to sail with a baby remember to take with you a lot of bottled water as you’d better avoid washing anything that the baby is going to use with the water from the tanks.
