Tackers 1 – “Having Fun” 

This program is designed to provide a safe and enjoyable introduction to dinghy sailing for primary school aged kids (7-12 years).  Suitable to complete beginners.

Kids sail in pairs in small boats called OziOpti’s.  They learn the basics of boat handling, and manoeuvring, practice safety drills and how to recover from a capsize.  All exercises are incorporated into games so the kids are unaware they are in a lesson, they are just having fun.  It’s a great way to meet new friends while having fun on the water.

Our Tackers 1 courses are $300 per student and our Tackers 2 & 3 courses are $320 per student (as the kids move on to sailing a boat by themselves).
