Our two beloved sons are our deckhands, James and Nathan. They are completely green to sailing (literally in James’ case). Like most kids of this age and era, they get bored quickly without substantial stimulus. But, we keep them from being seasick and bored by trying to engage them in the sea and its creatures. Spotting seals and other wildlife keeps them occupied for short periods. Hopefully, soon James will take an interest in trimming the sails or manning the helm when conditions allow. I suspect they will grow up the way I did with sailing being part of there life.
