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. 


The Keppel Bay Sailing Club holds all of our Tackers programs on the safe sheltered waters of the Causeway Lake. This is a great venue for learners as it is almost always calm and the parents can easily see their children from the banks.
