families sailing around the world

Sailing around the world as a family might sound crazy but I am glad to let you know there are plenty of families doing exactly this. We have been following these families on social media and are in contact with some of them.

I am a big fan of getting insights from people who have “been there, done that, and bought the T-Shirt” and the community spirit amongst these families is pretty strong. Boats with kids are in regular contact with each other and even meet up for special occasions such as birthdays or Xmas. There are a few online groups on facebook and other online forums where you’ll find most of the boats with kids.

Even though we are not on the water yet I have reached out to some families to ask questions or get information. All of them responded immediately which is amazing and extremely helpful.

I am very much looking forward to meeting some of them when our journey starts. In this blog post, I want to share a list of sailing families that are currently on their way exploring the world.

Please note that all of these families are on social media and all the information I present here is in the public domain. There are plenty of other families currently cruising our planet but they keep a lower (non-public) profile. I respect that and have not mentioned their details here.

Click on the name and you will be taken to their website or main social media account where you can find more information.

PS: I have reached out to some of the families below and will write a few “feature profiles” in the next few weeks 😉

This list is in no particular order.
