Kids Boathouse

Welcome to the Tackers Boathouse,
where learning to sail is all about having fun



 Click here to download fun Activity Sheets

Tackers is all about having a great time with other kids, playing loads of games and going on adventures while learning how to sail together. There isn’t a court, a pitch or an oval like other sports, instead you have a beach, river or lake to explore.

Tackers Instructors and Assistant Instructors are there to teach you how to sail and make sure you are having loads of fun at the same time!

When you start sailing in Tackers you will be with a group of kids and get the chance to sail with someone else in the boat so you can learn and have fun together.

All Tackers receive a certificate of achievement at the end of each level. Some clubs* will also provide kids with a Tackers Pack at the start or end of every level.

*Please enquire at your centre about whether they provide Tackers Packs
