 The club currently runs learn-to sail events for kids, and we areaiming at developing programs for more mature sailing novices however we are not there yet, but there are many members who would be more than happy to take a novice for a sail as a crew and to teach them as well.
 

BYC is strongly supported by Yachting Victoria having accredited sailing instructors leading the junior Learn to Sail program TACKERS. BYC has its own fleet of the very popular Opti and Pacer training dinghies which are an excellent platform for both new and experienced sailors of any age to develop their skills.

TACKERS
– junior sailing program

This is a Learn to Sail Program run in the Club’s fleet of Opti's & Pacers and held on the lake in good view of parents and siblings. Under the guidance of qualified Yachting Australia instructors.

 

If you are between 8 - 12 years old and can swim, you would be eligible. Girls are very welcome! Beginner, Intermediate plus beginner racing groups are catered for.

 

Participants in the Junior Tackers program will be awarded a junior club membership until September 30 2018 and will be welcomed to partake in youth Sunday sailing in term 1 2018.
