The Steps

Aims to provide children with a fun, safe and affordable way to get into sailing. Kids sail in pairs in small boats, plus it's a great way to meet new friends. 

Aims to build on the fun participants had in Tackers 1, to progress their sailing skills. If kids are confident, they can sail a boat on their own with lots of support, supervision and encouragement from the Instructor and Assistant Instructors.

This course focuses on advanced sailing skills through games and adventures on the water. This is a chance for the kids to sail dinghies on their own, learning how to make the boat go faster and playing games, all under the guidance and supervision of the Instructor and Assistant Instructors.
