Green Fleet

Green-Fleet

Green fleet is a club based junior sailing activity for children who have completed the Tackers Program (all 3 levels ) or equivalent program. Sailing recognises that primary school age children are more likely to enjoy and be retained in sport, if it is less competitive and more social and fun/ games based.

We offer a number of Green Fleet options:

  1. Saturday Afternoons 1pm – 4pm during term
  2. School Holidays

Saturday Green Fleet is organised in conjunction with Albert Sailing Club & Albert Park Yacht Club, and is delivered by Boatshed Instructors aiming to:

  • bring together all the kids on the lake.
  • provide kids with fun, ongoing & flexible participation.
  • develop skills after completing Tackers.
  • provide parents & kids from The Boatshed with an easy pathway into club sailing.

The instructor(s) are accredited instructor(s) from The Boatshed and our fleet of Optis are available for use free of charge.

The cost of the program varies but is usually around $35/session with options to book all or part of the program. Membership at either Albert Sailing Club or Albert Park Yacht Club is also needed to participate in the program.

Junior 1yr memberships are $145 @ Albert Sailing Club or $125 @ Albert Park Yacht Club. Club membership gives them access to the club’s boat hire, races, social events and all training programs.
