Sailing milestones for a 1 year old?

Being the end of 2014 and start of 2015, I thought I would reflect on what it has been like to raise Orbit on Medina this year. It has been an eventful year, he has met the development milestones as set out in the baby books, but what about his sailing milestones? I am not sure what the sailing milestones are for a one year old who also lives on a boat, but here are some of Orbit’s achievements for 2014.

Learning how to walk on the floating pontoons in the marina

Am not sure what this year is going to bring, but I am sure it will be filled with lots of adventures!

Happy New Year to everyone!
