Adelaide Sailing Club at West Beach is the home of the Tackers Learn to Sail program in Adelaide.

Tackers is a fun introductory, games-based sailing program designed for kids aged 7-12 yrs, delivered at recognised Tackers Clubs. Kids don’t need to have any sailing experience or club membership to participate. All the equipment, including the boats, is provided.

Tackers Intro is a special experience of Tackers, that allows you to sample the program before you make a decision about enrolling in a ‘Tackers 1 – Having Fun’ course. It’s not a prerequisite to Tackers 1 but does give kids the chance to get out on the water and see the types of games and activities that Tackers offers.

The Tackers Intro includes a 2.5 hour session with a qualified Instructor and Assistant Instructor and costs around $80. If kids enjoy the Tackers Intro, ‘Tackers 1 – Having Fun’ is a great next step.

There are three levels to do if your kids enjoyed the Intro session. Each level involves 20 hours of participation structured as a 4 day holiday program or as a series of sessions over several weeks on a Saturday morning.

Tackers 1 – Having Fun

Tackers 2 – Tricks & Techniques

Tackers 3 – Sailing Fast!

In Tackers 1 – Having Fun. Kids sail in pairs in small boats. It’s a great way to meet new friends and kids have the chance to sail with others in their group.

Tackers 2 – Tricks & Techniques. If kids are confident, they can sail a boat on their own with lots of support, supervision and encouragement from the Instructor and Assistant Instructors.

The final level is Tackers 3 – Sailing Fast! This is a chance for the kids to sail boats on their own, learning how to make the boat go faster and playing more games, all whilst still under the guidance and supervision of the Instructor and Assistant Instructors.

Adelaide Sailing Club are running the Tackers program all through the school holidays as well as in term time. Click on the link here to check out the dates that the programs are running.

Play and Go checked out the Tackers Intro session this morning and the kids loved it – they can’t wait to enrol for Tackers 1 in January!
