Tackers - sailing fun for 7-12 year olds.

Tackers is an introductory, fun, games-based sailing program designed for kids aged 7 to 12. Kids don’t need to have any sailing experience. All the equipment, including the boats, is provided. Our leaders are nationally accredited and our Tackers kids learn to sail in the safe environment of the Maroochy River in small groups. Tackers is a national program, designed by Australian Sailing and delivered by a network of dedicated sailing clubs.
