Introducing Tackers 2 graduates to competitive sailing. Tackers 3 builds on the skills and knowledge gained in the Tackers 1 & 2, and will enable the child to manoeuvre the boat efficiently in light to moderate conditions. The students learn more advanced boat handling skills, basic racing skills, and boat maintenance to prepare them for RQYS Green Fleet.

What to expect: A nationally renowned curriculum, started in Victoria, that introduces students to the concept of sailing. Each morning during the term will include a briefing on land and some theory, then implementation of that theory on the water (weather dependent). The holiday programs are the same, just running two sessions each day instead of one morning a week. Every Tackers program is twenty one hours of education, and most of the time is spent sailing.

What to bring: Sun-safe clothes to get wet, closed in shoes to get wet (ie: no sandals or Crocs), sun-screen, and a great attitude! All the students are given a colour-coded Tackers cap for the program.
