Sailing in Croatia on a chartered yacht can be a great opportunity for children to learn something about the life on the sea, nature and Croatia itself. However, having children on board can be as tricky as it is wonderful.
It is well known to every parent that kids can be easily bored so you need to pack plenty of things which will entertain them and make them busy. They can also be playful and clumsy on deck so ensure some safety features for your child to make sailing safe and fun.
It is important to set safety rules which you have to discuss with the children before the trip. Make sure safety rules are strictly followed, especially when younger children are involved. All children must wear a life jacket when on deck, no child goes on the fore deck when sailing, and if the weather gets really too rough, children must go down below. Beside these rules, parent supervision is inevitable.
If youngest ones are on board, we suggest a safety net. Safety net is the net that is advisable to have hung onto the boat's railing especially when sailing with small children and animals. It prevents children, toys, pieces of equipment or pets from falling overboard. Let Dalmatia Charter team know if you'll need a safety net installed and we'll put it on the boats fence.
Kids are more sensitive of environment change than adults, so make sure that you bring along enough seasickness medicines as well as for flu and stomachaches; sunscreen with a high SPF is a must. Those who bring babies onboard should bare in mind that baby food is not available in every island you sail to, especially if it needs special nurishment.
Children would enjoy their stay on the yacht as long as they find it fun, interesting and exciting, and their parents would enjoy their sailing trip as well! Enjoy sailing in Croatia carefree and safe by letting us know if you will need any equipment or accessories for children and we will include it on your sailing holiday provision.
