‘Tackers’ is the Australian Sailing program for beginners aged 7-12 years.

We own a fleet of sturdy plastic dinghies called Optimists which are ideal for teaching youngsters to sail – easy to rig, light to launch and lots of fun. Kids can sit in a pair or solo. Our instructors show them manoeuvres on land first, then tow them by RIB in groups of 6 to a quiet patch of water for simple exercises.

The levels are:

  1. Having Fun
  2. Tricks & Techniques
  3. Sailing fast!
