I'm struggling with this one. On the one hand, I love the idea of family sailing, and I love the idea of getting young kids outside the protective bubble of our climate-controlled, over-protective, soul-sapping culture and introducing them to the grand thrill of adventure. On the other hand, I have enormous respect for the power and unpredictability of the North Atlantic, and the violence that can befall small sailboats trying to cross its vast reaches. So when I think about James Berwick, currently on his way from Maine to France aboard his Open 40 Anasazi Girl, I'm conflicted. Berwick is an enormously experienced solo sailor, and clearly an excellent and careful seaman. But this voyage is a family voyage. And in this case, "family" means it includes two young children, ages 3 years and (gulp) 9 months.
