I was lucky enough to take Bastian sailing on the Gippsland lakes with my parents for a week, it wasn't till the night before we left that I started to panic that he would not like the boat, or even worse get seasick likes his daddy.

He had a ball, the only thing he was not to keen on was when we had to use the motor due to lack of wind or to motor into/out of berths etc.

In fact he found it so relaxing that he fell asleep on both days when we did a fair bit of sailing.

I think it is safe to say that we have a little sailor on our hands, just like his Granddad.  Granddad was very happy that he enjoyed it and even more so that by the end Bastian was telling everyone that Granddad's boat goes "woosh" and noisy speedboats go "boom boom boom boom" complete with a screwed up face to show his dislike for "stink boats" as granddad calls them.

Now I just need to find a way to cure seasickness and I can arrange my dream family holiday for a few years time, once #2 is born and a bit older

Sounds like a lovely trip ;)

I'm hoping that Miss K loves her daddies boat if he ever finishes it... unfortunately it is a boom, boom boat (ex trawler!)

What a lovely time B had! DH and I would love to have a week sailing in the Whitsundays. One day we will do it, when the kids are older...
