Junior Term 4 programmes

The Woollahra Sailing Club Junior Term 4 sailing school programmes commence on the weekend of 19 and 20 October.  Book now to secure your spot.

Kids Learn to Sail (Tackers) 7 -12 years old
The Tackers Learn to sail Programme is aimed at introducing children to sailing in a fun, safe, accessible and affordable way.
The programme offers children the opportunity to start on a pathway to ongoing involvement in clubs, gradually progressing through over several seasons.

Optimist green fleet
Green fleet is a club based junior (primary school age) sailing activity for kids who have completed the Tackers Programme (all 3 levels) or a similar junior learn to sail program.
Like most sports sailing recognises that primary school age kids are more likely to enjoy, and be retained in sport, if it is less competitive and more fun/games based and social. Most other sports used modified rules at this stage before progressing to the adult rules at the youth (secondary school) age group.

2019 NSW Youth Championships

Point Wolstoncroft will host the 2019 NSW Youth Championships with more than 400 competitors from around Australia expected to compete in Australia’s largest youth regatta.
The Championships mark the start of the sailing season and are a great warm up to the Class Nationals and the Australian Youth Championships in early January 2020.
Good luck to our Junior Sailing manager Alex and to all our members heading to
