Tackers is an introductory, fun, games based sailing program designed for primary school aged kids. Kids don’t need to have any prior sailing experience and we will provide all the equipment.
Tackers involves 20 hours of participation over a series of sessions, each kid receives a Tacker kit and a certificate of achievement upon completion. Tackers instructors are young, energetic, love sailing and have gained Yachting Australia accreditation.
All the equipment, including the boats, is provided along with Yachting Australia qualified Instructors and Assistant Instructors, a Tackers Pack and on the last day a BBQ to celebrate achievements and to hand out certificates.
There are three levels that kids can progress through:
- Tackers 1 – Having Fun
- Tackers 2 – Tricks & Techniques
In 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.
Each level involves 20 hours of participation, structured as a five day holiday program.
