And if need be I will pop her and the chick onto the ferry for the return journey.
I a taking her for a cruise up the Helford river next weekend as a taster.
As others have said, I think you should make sure that they are both comfortable with being on the boat in the first place before you try anything as ambitious a channel crossing.
Having said that we did St V three years ago in my old Ribtec 585 with my kids who would have been 11 & 9, but you will need ideal weather for this to be a successful venture for all parties concerned.
I'm sure my 12 year old daughter Sophie would love to play "big sis" to your little girl and she would also be very welcome on Caprisante.
You need to be watching the weather patterns from a week out and make your decisions accordingly.
We won't be going if the weather looks nasty.
p.s . have you got enough seats anyway ?
