Tackers 1 - Learn to sail program for kids 7 to 12 years old. Six fun filled sessions Sundays 9 am to 12.30 pm. Tackers is part of Yachting Australia's nationally accredited learn to sail program and designed to get kids interested in sailing/boating and be safe around the water.They'll learn to sail an Opti on a course, turn the Opti, go exploring, learn some useful marine knots and make the Opti do what they want it to do - because they're the boss (under the watchful eye of our instructors who are qualified by Yachting Australia and are specially selected to teach kids in sailing!). St.Kilda harbour is a really great place to sail because kids can swim, muck around on the sandy beach and maybe see a penguin or two! Parents can watch from the St.Kilda Pier and have a coffee at the historic kiosk. The wind is much better at St.Kilda because it's on the Bay and sometimes we have a few small waves to surf in. Course fee is $298 - or $288 each family discount if more than one child attends from the same family.Course fee includes a Yachting Australia Tackers 1 certificate. Spaces filling fast so give us a call at Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron 9534 0059 or Leigh on mobile 0412 196301.
