Tackers

Sailing School – Juniors – Tackers

 

Tackers is an introductory, fun, games-based sailing program designed by Yachting Australia for kids aged 7 to 12. Kids don’t need to have any sailing experience and they don’t have to be a member of the club to participate. The Tackers program is delivered in small groups by a Yachting Australia qualified Instructors. Juniors generally progress through the three levels in 18 months. This can be accelerated by enrolling in Tackers 2 and Tackers 3 courses during the holidays.
