Tackers is an introductory, fun, games-based sailing program designed for kids aged 7 to 12.
Kids don’t need to have any prior sailing experience. All equipment, including the boat is provided. It is run all school holidays at the Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron.
There are 3 levels to the program that your child can progress through:
Aimed at providing a fun, safe, and affordable way to get into sailing. Tackers 1 introduces children to the basics of sailing through games on and off the water.
Aims to build on the fun participants had at Tackers 1, progressing their sailing skills by sailing solo and teaching the basics of all angles of wind and beginner rules.
Focuses on advancing sailing skills through games and adventures on the water. This includes the start of our junior sailing program.
