Learn to Sail - Kids


Click here for information on Balmoral Sailing Club's Junior Sailing Program. 

It's the next step after completing Tackers 3 and is a great introduction to club racing!

Tackers is an introductory, fun, games-based sailing program designed for kids aged 7 to 12, delivered at recognised Tackers' Clubs. Kids don’t need to have any sailing experience and don’t have to be a member of a club to participate. All the equipment, including the boats, is provided. Kids play loads of games and go on adventures together to learn how to sail. 


Tackers' Clubs also offer Tackers Intro for Schools which is a three hour introductory program designed to give kids an experience of sailing.
