The book's central character, Sailor Taylor, takes children on an enjoyable sailing excursion: from charting a course to tying knots and studying clouds, as well as completing projects and puzzles. It covers staying safe when you're out on the water and teaches young sailors about sailing rules, facts about parts of the boats and navigation. It will show children how to plot a sailing route, make a paper boat and a wind vane, design their own flag, cook a new on-board recipe, know which way the wind is blowing and much, much more. There activities are combined with lots of sailing facts and information told in a fun, easy-to-understand way.
There are plenty of quiet hours on a longer passage (or not so quiet if you have bored kids hanging about the cockpit!) as well as at home in the winter, or on bad-weather weekends. This book is the perfect way to keep children occupied and a great tool for encouraging your kids to discover the many enjoyable things to do on the water.
Full of lovely, friendly illustrations, and imaginative and educational ideas for making the most of sailing, it's the ideal sailing companion for children. Hours of fun and adventure guaranteed!
