BHSA once again hosted the Tackers program in conjunction with Australian Sailing and the support of Barwon Coast. Forty four children aged between 7 and 17 years were able to participate this year, up from 30 children in 2020.
Due to Covid19, the format was slightly different with both a morning and afternoon program running, rather than an all day program as previously. This allowed more children to participate and a cheaper course fee.
A new course added this year was the “Out There Sailing” program. This allowed us to offer a program to the 12-17 year age group for the first time and uses the larger Pacer, a very versatile 2-man sailing boat. The participants also have the opportunity to experience and learn the use of sail boards as part of this program.
