Quick one, whats the views on the practical minimum age for kids on a flotilla holiday. I'd love to take mine (8 and 6) but I'd be worried they got bored / cabin fever. I suggested 2 hour hops to my wife for next year (sail 2 hours, stop, snorkel, BBQ etc then sail some more), but she still thinks the kids would be bored after a week.
Any thoughts/ experiences?
Cheers

We have bumped in to families with very young kids (2). They ask for nets all round and only sail for short distances.

It can be done but I wouldn't have done it at the time, mainly because we had four kids in six years.

On man to man marking it would be possiblei think.
