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 they don’t have to be a member of a club to participate. All the equipment, including the boats, is provided.
There are three levels that kids can progress through:
Tackers 1 – Having Fun
Tackers 2 – Tricks & Techniques
Tackers 3 – Sailing Fast!
Upon completion of the Tackers program you can become a boat owner and join us as part of the Australian Optimist fleet. There are many good quality second hand boats available on the Optimist Buy / Sell page.
