1.

Having Fun - kids sail in pairs in small boats. It’s a great way to meet new friends and kids have the chance to sail with others in their group.

This program is designed to provide a safe and enjoyable introduction to dinghy sailing for primary school kids.  The course includes an introduction to fundamental boat handling skills and essential safety knowledge.

When kids start sailing in Tackers 1.  they will be sailing in pairs just off the beach, there will be an Instructor and an Assistant Instructor in a safety boat supervising the group. The safety boat stays on the water all the time the kids are sailing.
