Wednesday Tackers have a break on 6 March after 4 weeks. End of term is Friday 12 April.

Green Adventure is a program designed specifically by Woollahra Sailing Club for sailors who have completed Tackers 3 and would like to further progress their sailing skills without the competitive aspects of racing. We use relaxed teaching structure to further develop each sailors independence and sailing knowledge with a fun, games based and social approach. The children will be provided boats by the Club which they will learn to rig independently. They will further enhance their safe boat handling skills and knowledge by independently taking to the waters of Rose Bay and around Shark Island.

Progression: Sailors can move from Green Adventure to Green Fleet at any time. The next stage is joining the WSC Academy Optimist Performance Program to build skills and engage in formal racing. A level of competency is required. From Green Adventure sailors can also choose to progress to either ILCA (Laser) Green fleet or the Teens Out There Sailing program if they enjoy recreational sailing and have outgrown the optimist boat. Any queries please contact us [email protected]

Course times: Sessions run from 11.30am - 2pm for 8 weeks.

Qualifying for Green Adventure sailors must have completed Tackers 3 or equivalent. The children use boats by the Club which they will learn to rig independently although are encouraged to have their own boats if that is possible. They enhance their safe boat handling skills and knowledge by taking to the waters of Rose Bay and around Shark Island.
