Get out of irons, Learn some rules of the road and nautical signposts all in your Optiís, Tackers is the fun way to learn to sail. St.Kilda harbour is a really great place to sail because you 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.
