– Tackers 2

“Tricks & Techniques”

Tackers 2 – Tricks & Techniques is for those who’ve completed Tackers 1.  Tackers 2 consolidates the experiences and knowledge gained in Tackers 1 and introduces skills and knowledge that will enable students to safely and competently sail a small boat in controlled conditions (light winds, enclosed waters) with limited guidance.  The children get a great sense of achievement by learning to sail a boat on their own!

The course is 20 hours of instruction, broken into a number of sessions depending upon the course structure.

Weekend Mornings (Term Time):  On either Saturday or Sunday mornings (dependent on the season) we run an 8-week program with 2.5hour sessions.  The  program starts at 9:00am through until 11:30am in Spring/Summer and 9:30am to 12:00noon in Autumn/Winter.

School Holidays: Tackers 1 & 2 programs run in the school holidays.  The October school holiday program is run over four days – Tuesday to Friday – with each daily session 5 hours in duration – 9:30am to 2:30pm.  The January school holiday program is run over five days – Monday to Friday – with each daily session 4 hours in duration 9:00am to 1:00pm.
