Learn to Sail - Kids


Tackers is a fun introductory, games-based sailing course designed for kids aged 7-12 yrs, delivered at recognised Tackers Centres. Kids don’t need to have any sailing experience or club membership to participate. All the equipment, including the boats, is provided. 
The Tackers courses are delivered in small groups by an Australian Sailing qualified Instructor and Assistant Instructors.




There are three levels that kids can progress through:

Tackers 1 – Having Fun

Kids sail in pairs in small boats. It’s a great way to meet new friends and kids have the chance to sail with others in their group.

Tackers 2 – Tricks & Techniques

If kids are confident, they can sail a boat on their own with lots of support, supervision and encouragement from the Instructor and Assistant Instructors.

Tackers 3 – Sailing Fast!

This is a chance for the kids to sail boats on their own, learning how to make the boat go faster and playing more games, all whilst still under the guidance and supervision of the Instructor and Assistant Instructors.

Each level involves 20 hours of participation structured as a 4-5 day holiday program or as a series of sessions over several weeks either on a Saturday/Sunday or after-school.
