Image 3What does it take to ensure your children have a boating vacation in comfort, fun and, of course, safety? We have selected five accessories that will make children’s life on board pleasant and safe. Carefully consider the children’s needs before setting sail because one carelessness or carelessness on your part can result in a ruined vacation!

06.330.00 unite-500x500SLEEP SOUNDLY – BUNK NET
A good nylon bunk net is one solution we recommend to avoid tumbles in the night or during naps at sea. Price: 11.98 euros. You can find it HERE.

The liveliness of toddlers is well known: don’t let them run around barefoot on board; one blow on a choke is enough to ruin your vacation. Better to have them wear breathable boat shoes: classic Crocs are fine, and now there are even boat models! Price: 44.99 euros. You can find them HERE.

easybreath-snorkeling-maskEXPLORE – AT THE TOP OF YOUR LUNGS
A boating vacation for a child is an opportunity to learn about his or her surroundings through play. In the roadstead, if your child is eager to explore the seabed, know that Easybreath, the mask with a built-in respirator, has just been launched on the market. Price: 39.95 euros. You can find it HERE.

If you are raising your children on bread and sail, why not take advantage of the time spent in the cockpit to teach them how a regatta works, thanks to the 151 Miglia board game? Price: 55.45 euros. You can find it HERE.

29.714.00-500x500BABIES AT SEA NO THANKS – THE MOB
Finally, to be on the safe side, consider purchasing a MOB (Man Over Board) system, such as Raymarine’s LifeTag: if the wireless remote control worn by the boy strays more than 9 meters away from the control unit, contact with the base is broken and the man overboard alarm is activated. Most useful especially if you surf at night. Price: 563.88 euros. You can find it HERE.
