Under 12: Tackers 1 – Having Fun
The Tackers program recognises that children learn differently to adults and teaches essential skills in a fun, games based environment. Young Tackers will spend time sailing, paddling, playing games, and learning to love the waterways - all under the watchful eye of our nationally accredited instructors. Safety is at the heart of the Tackers program, young participants will learn seamanship skills and a healthy respect for safety on the water. Kids can also do Tackers on Sundays during term time!
Under 12: Tackers 2 – Tricks and Techniques
Tackers 2 is for those who have graduated Tackers 1. Kids in this course get the opportunity to sail on their own for the first time, and take some responsibility for the boat they are given. This course connects perfectly to our regular weekend sailing for those keen little ones.
Under 12: Tackers 3 – Sailing Fast!
Tackers 3 is the next step for those who have graduated from Tackers 1 and 2. Kids sail on their own in one of the Club's fleet of poly optimists and learn the finer points of sailing fast such as sail trim and basic racing skills whilst playing games and having fun.
