Tackers is an introductory, fun, games-based sailing program designed for kids aged 7 to 12, delivered at recognised Tackers Clubs throughout Australia. Kids don’t need to have any sailing experience.  All the equipment, including the boats, is provided.

There are 3 steps to the Tackers program;

Tackers 1 – Having Fun

Tackers 2 – Tricks & Techniques

Tackers 3 – Sailing Fast

Each level involves 20 hours of participation. The first step, Tackers 1, is conducted over 4 days as a school holiday program. Children are then able to complete Tackers 2 & 3 on Sunday mornings during school terms or as another school holiday program.
