Tackers Junior Sailing Program

Royal Yacht Club of Victoria is the perfect venue for families, and children in particular, to learn to sail. The Club understands the importance of quality training for both adults and children. Tackers is a program aimed at giving every junior Australian the opportunity to go sailing in a professional, safe and fun environment.

Tackers is an entry-level sailing program for primary school aged children. Designed around kids, for kids, the Tackers program seeks to provide a vibrant new approach to sail training that recognises that the learning styles of children differs from those of adults.

The program is based around some core values that inform everything that is delivered and communicated about the program. Kids don’t need to have any sailing experience and they don’t need to have their own boat. All the equipment, including life jackets and boats, is provided. They don’t even need to be a member of the Club to participate, though of course we would be delighted if ultimately they decided to join up.
