Learn to Sail

Belmont 16s is an Accredited Discover Sailing Centre, offering Learn to Sail courses for juniors with experienced instructors during school holiday periods, week days and weekends throughout the warmer months of the year.

Tackers is a fun introductory, games-based kids learn to sail program designed for ages 7 to 12 years.  Kids don’t need to have any sailing experience or club membership to participate.  All the equipment, including the boats and lifejackets, is provided.

Tackers is delivered in small dinghies specifically designed for the program and supervised by Australian Sailing qualified Instructors and Assistant Instructors who are on the water all the time the kids are sailing.

Programs are either 4 or 5 days during the school holidays or over 8 – 10 weeks during term time. Each course is focused on having fun and playing games while learning the basics of sailing.
