Hi,we are an adult family of 5 but likely to have a couple of extras come along. We are from Auckland New Zealand and have owned a yacht and have quite a bit of sailing and boating experience. Two of us have "Boatmasters Certificates". We are planning a family sailing holiday and fancy a bit of going ashore for a meal, but also happy to anchor in a bay. One of the group suffers from a bit of seasickness from time to time and some like a bit of a decent sailing. What area would you recommend to sail in? We'd like a 4 cabin boat. We are thinking Sept but are flexible, keen to keep costs down a bit as mum and dad are paying ;-) Are there marinas that one would need to pay for a night berth. Can one just anchor in a bay and row ashore for a meal. Do we need to show proof of sailing ability for a bareboat charter? Thanks for your advice.
