Tackers

The pathway starts with short, 1 and 2 hour introduction classes in knee deep water, designed to get kids from 4 years of age familiar with being on a boat and the water. This progresses through the tackers 1, 2, and then green fleet courses, all the while improving skills in a defined fun and engaging way, and then hopefully onto competitive racing against other kids at the Club.
