Kids will love getting out on the water, sailing a boat in Elizabeth Quay.
Thanks to Australian Sailing and major partner SunSmart, South of Perth Yacht Club and Swan River Sailing, the popular Tackers Sailing Program will run Saturday and Sunday (10:00AM to 4:00PM) at the Club Marine Perth International Boat Show.
Tackers Sailing is an introductory, fun, games-based sailing program designed for children aged 7 to 12, delivered at recognised Tackers Clubs Australia-wide. Visit www.discoversailing.org.au for more information.
The Tackers program is completely FREE. Simply visit the set-up in Elizabeth Quay and complete a registration form. A lifejacket will be provided, along with basic instruction. View map information here.
It is completely safe, with a special course allocated for the Tackers boats and managed by a team of qualified instructors. And most importantly, kids will enjoy the thrill of sailing all by themselves on the beautiful Swan River!
Please remember wear sun-protective clothing to participate, protect yourself in five ways from skin cancer – Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek and Slide.
We look forward to welcoming new Tackers at the 2019 Club Marine Perth International Boat Show!
