Other Information Tackers 3: Sailing fast! Now you’re going places. More advanced learn to sail program for kids 7 to 12 years old. Six fun Sunday sessions to 9 am to 12.30 pm. When you’ve finished Tackers 2 you can move onto Tackers 3, which also has one Tacker sailor per boat. We learn how to get through boat through a roll tack & gybe, stop the boat, sail backwards, sail around a triangular & trapezoid course, understand about starting a race and much more. 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. This program runs for six sessions with instructors qualified by Yachting Australia and includes a Tackers 3 certificate(no pack). Course fee is $298 - or $288 each family discount if more than one child attends from the same family. Spaces filling fast so give us a call at Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron 9534 0059 or Leigh on mobile 0412 196301.
