Junior Learn to Sail

Welcome to the TACKERS learn to sail program!

Tackers is a fun introductory, games-based kids learn to sail program designed for ages 7 to 12 years. Kids don’t need to have any sailing experience or club membership to participate. All the equipment, including the boats, is provided. Tackers is delivered in small groups of boats specifically designed for the program and supervised by Australian Sailing qualified Instructors and Assistant Instructors who are on the water all the time the kids are sailing.

Programs are either delivered as a 5 day holiday program or as series of sessions over several weeks either on Saturdays or after-school. Kids receive a certificate of achievement at the completion of each program.

There are three levels that kids can progress through (Tackers 1 is the first level), each level involves around 15 hours of participation. Each course is focused on having fun, playing games while learning the basics of sailing.
