Hillarys Yacht Club TackersLogoTackers is a fun, introductory, games-based sailing program designed for kids aged 7-12 years. Kids don’t need to have any sailing experience or club membership to participate. All the equipment, including the boats, is provided.

The Tackers Program is delivered in small groups by a Yachting Australia qualified Instructor and Assistant Instructors.

There are three levels that kids can progress through:

  • Tackers 1 – Having Fun
  • Tackers 2 – Tricks & Techniques
  • Tackers 3 – Sailing Fast!

 

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.

The final level is 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 four or five day holiday program.

Age: 7-12
