Sailing in the sheltered waters at Oxenford is a great place for our young sailors to have fun while learning the sport of sailing!
Tackers is a program aimed at getting more primary school aged kids sailing at clubs and centres across the country. Everything about Tackers is centered on understanding how kids learn skills and have fun through sport. The boats used in the Tackers program are small and easy to handle, designed to be sailed by children under the age of 12.
Tackers is delivered at three levels:
Tackers 1 – Having Fun
Tackers 2 – Tricks & Techniques
Tackers 3 – Sailing Fast!
Each program consists of:
– 20 hours tuition from qualified Australian Sailing Instructors and Assistant Instructors
– Combination of on-the-water and off-the-water games
– Certificate of achievement at the end of the course
If this is the first sailing experience for the Kids then we would recommend trying our Fun Sail Sessions before committing to this course. Our Instructors are able to provide you with feedback relating to the best starting plan for your child.
