SLEEPING AND LIVING COMFORTABLY ON BOARD
You will notice that your kids can enjoy boat life more than you when it comes to space. A sailing boat is filled with small spaces kids can crawl into, which can be great fun for them.
The boat can also facilitate sleep for some children. The gentle rocking of the waves can be pleasant for both kids and adults, to be honest - unless you get seasick, but that's another story. According to the type of boat, there can be cabins with double or bunk beds. In the case of the second ones, these are usually provided with side barriers so your kids won't fall off. Depending on how they are used to, you can choose the bed allocation that best fits your family.
Sleeping at anchor is an experience that everyone should try at least once in their lifetime. The freedom of being independent of timings, having a swim at sunset, having a quick shower, and getting ready for dinner in the cockpit is what makes a sailing holiday unique.
Sleeping in the port depends on your holiday's budget availability and the weather conditions. If the skipper decides that it's safer to spend the night in the port, the best suggestion is to follow his directions. There are many advantages of sleeping in a port, such as electrical supplies, water, and the possibility of getting off the boat and visiting a town. A good occasion to stretch your legs and spend some quality time together!
