Holidays on Kid Boats

Update: Kids4Sail and Cruising Mom Blog have teamed up for raft ups!

Raft ups are cruising bloggers sharing their unique perspectives on a given cruising topic, and their shared post links are curated on that topic’s page. They’re a great resource for families who are preparing to cruise, newbie family crews, even seasoned salty family crews. Learn more about raft ups here.
