The Tackers 1, 2 & 3 programs – are the main accredited introductory kids (7-12 years) sailing course recognised by Yachting Australia. Tackers is a great way to increase childrens life skills such as communication, self reliance, team work, problem solving and self confidence.


Green fleet is a club based junior sailing activity for children who have completed the Tackers Program (all 3 levels ) or a similar learn to sail program.

Like most sports, 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.

This is a great way to get you child involved at a club either on the lake or on the Bay.
