Tackers

 

The pathway starts with short introduction classes in shallow water, designed to get children from 4 years of age familiar with being on a boat and the water. This progresses through to Tackers 1, 2 and 3, then Green Fleet courses, all the while improving skills in a defined fun and engaging way. Once your Tackers pathway is complete you can transition to the RGYC Off The Beach (OTB) community who coordinate our junior class’s club racing and/or move to the youth Out There Sailing program a non-competitive recreational sailing program where you can continue to learn new skills in a fun and social environment.
