Tackers 7-12

BLAIRGOWRIE YACHT SQUADRON

Tackers 7 - 12 years

Start out on the right course.  Registrations now open.

When thinking about getting their kids into sailing many parents ask, what’s the best age to start? At BYS, where we’ve had generations of kids learn the skills they need to feel confident and in control on-the-water, we believe that’s an individual decision. But in our experience,  new sailors from age 7 -12 have what it takes to start their sailing life, and that’s what Tackers is all about.

 

If your kids are keen to sail but don’t know how or they just want to get into a boat this pathway program helps lay down the skills they need that will be with them for life.

It’s a fun, games-based sailing program designed for kids with no sailing experience. And no club membership is needed to get started. All they need is to get ready to have fun!

FIND THE RIGHT COURSE FOR YOU

How does Tackers work?

  • The program is a 4 or 5-day holiday program run in the January school holidays.
  • The program is delivered in small groups by an Australian Sailing qualified Instructor and Assistant Instructors.
  • All equipment is provided.
  • Children receive a Tackers kit and a certificate of achievement at the completion of each program.

And best of all, parents get to join in the fun with a ‘parents Coffee & Club Tour’ on Mondays and a Free Sailing Experience on Thursdays of the Tackers Course. Sounds like Fun?

What’s covered in each course?

Tackers 1 – is all about having fun! Kids sail in pairs in small boats, this is a great way to introduce kids to the water and the feeling of being on the water in a boat. Sailing with others in their group is a great way to meet friends.

Tackers 2 – is about learning tricks and techniques to help the kids sail the boat, and if they are feeling confident, they can sail the boats on their own with lots of support, supervision and encouragement from our Australian Sailing qualified Instructors and Assistant Instructors.

Tackers 3 – is all about sailing fast! This is a chance for the kids to sail a boat on their own, learning how to make the boat go faster and playing more games, all whilst under the guidance and supervision of our Australian Sailing qualified Instructors and Assistant Instructors.
