Tackers Fun Day Fridays are back!

Fridays are for fun 2

We recommence this program on Friday 11th January, each Friday afternoon from 4-6pm (weather permitting).

It is aimed at kids 7-14 year olds, who ideally have already done a Tackers learn to sail program.

Only $15 per session, it is run by our junior assistant dinghy instructors under the supervision of an adult dinghy instructor.

Parents welcome to attend and enjoy a cold drink at our Boatshed while watching the youngsters sail around in the safe waters of the Marlin Marina.

We ran these sessions last year from August to November and the attendance tripled in that time, which is a good gauge of how popular it is.

Participants are encouraged to register online each week by using this link

Spread the word, and we look forward to seeing you on the water!
