Teens Try Sailing with Tackers, our introductory sailing course for 11 – 12 year-olds. The course aims to deliver a fun on-water experience for kids to try the sport of sailing at an affordable entry price. The course is run by Australian Sailing-accredited instructors and incorporates games, adventures, and group training drills to develop fundamental skills in a safe environment. There isn’t a court, pitch, gymnasium, or oval like other sports, instead, you have the beautiful Swan River to explore.
The Teens Try Sailing with Tackers course is $380 and runs over five 4 hour sessions, held during the school holidays.
Once sailors have completed a Teen Tackers course they may receive an invitation* to join our Open Skiff Green Fleet weekly training group to continue developing their skills and passion for the sport of sailing or alternatively may complete a second course to further develop confidence and skills in the boat before progressing.
