Kid's Corner

Cruising kids from near and far, and of different ages, tell their stories. Find out from them firsthand what it's like to live aboard, where they went, and what they liked best about the whole experience.

Grown-ups can tell you all day long what cruising is like for them. But only another kid can tell you what it's really like to live aboard and explore the world, or even your own home waters, from a boat. Check in here from time to time to read new stories from other kids. Find out what they liked and didn't like about the boating life. Find out what were their favorite experiences, and the coolest places. Or send us your own stories. We'd love to hear from you!
