Try Sailing with Tackers, our introductory sailing course for children aged 7-10. 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 an oval like other sports, instead, you have the beautiful Swan River to explore. The courses is run over five 4 hour sessions, running throughout our Summer Season with course options on Sunday mornings or mid-week mornings during the school holidays. We offer a special price of $320 during school terms and $350 during the school holidays. Once sailors have completed a Tackers course they may receive an invitation* to join our Optimist Green Fleet weekly training group to continue developing their skills and passion for the sport of sailing, or alternatively may complete a few extra Tackers sessions to further develop confidence and skills in the boat before progressing.
