We have 9 kids enrolled in our 4 day holiday Tackers program, which is terrific for our time.
The first day was too windy but the kids had great fun being towed behind the Rib in a line so they practice steering with a tiller. Rest of the class was theory, games and knots. They had so much fun, imagine when they actually sail!!
Special thanks to Sophie Martin who is giving up half of her holidays to volunteer as a Tackers Assistant Instructor. Liam Neville, Nick Turner and Taison Eady for helping as well. Also a special mention to Joanne (Phil Johnson’s sister in law) for staying and shopping and preparing snacks for the four days and Stellio for helping with a stubborn Rib motor.
We are looking forward to October when AYC runs its own Tackers courses.
TACKERS is the main accredited introductory kids sailing course recognised by Yachting Australia. Ages 7 years – 12 years.
Think Kids sail training think Tackers!
Tackers is a great way to increase children’s life skills such as communication, self-reliance, team work, problem solving and self-confidence all while having fun in a kid-centric environment.
This Easter why not introduce your children to the sport of Sailing on the safe waters of Altona Bay. The Boatshed will be running prog
rams in the second week of the school holidays.
Altona Yacht Club will also offer a discount to any parents who wish their children to progress onto Tackers 2 & 3 when they resume Tackers courses in October.
- Tackers 1 $165 14 -17th April 8.30 – 1.00pm (20 hour program)
- Tackers 2 $245 14 -17th April 1.30 – 6.00pm (20 hour program) for children who have previously completed a Tackers 1 course
