Kids Learn to Sail Programs

Learn to Sail at Fremantle Sailing Club

At Fremantle our Learn to Sail Programs provide an opportunity for people of all backgrounds, ages and abilities to find out how fun, safe, accessible and affordable sailing is. The first step in the pathway for kids is the Optimist Bronze Fleet. Optimists are small sailing boats and a great way to get into sailing. Sailing an Optimist can be fun and exhilarating and this Program has been developed to provide a safe introduction to dinghy sailing.  Our Saturday morning Programs are targeted towards young children (7-12 yrs) and teach all the safety points through to how to be a champion after progressing through the Bronze, Silver and Gold Fleet Programs.  To come and try sailing on a Saturday Morning you don’t need any experience or specialised equipment, Life Jackets and Boats are supplied and all you need to bring is some clothes to get wet in, a hat and an attitude to have fun. For more information on the Saturday Morning Program please email Travis Burtenshaw our Dinghy Administrator for more information. dinghyadmin@fsc.com.au

 

School Holiday Fun at Fremantle Sailing Club

School Holiday’s are a time for kids to get out and try new, fun, safe and affordable activities. At Fremantle we believe that Sailing is a fantastic way for kids to build new friendships and gain life skills that not many other sports can teach. Each school holiday we program in a number of courses where kids attend 20hours of tuition, Monday to Friday and start making their way through the Sailing Pathway set by our National Sporting Organisation, Australian Sailing.

Fremantle is now a Tackers Centre which is the program Australian Sailing released to target children between the ages of 7 and 12. The Tackers program was designed along the lines of AFL’s Auskick or Cricket Australia’s Milo Cricket. To find out more about the Tackers Program click here
