VIC RYCV Sailing Program, Williamstown
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 October 2018
Royal Yacht Club of Victoria
The VIC Sailing program in Williamstown, Melbourne, features five half days of sailing, covering all facets of the sport with specialist coaching sessions. The panel will include experienced sailing instructors from all over the country.
In an exciting new partnership with the Royal Yacht Club of Victoria, ASC will be running a Sailing program these spring holidays. Tackers is a group program aimed at introducing children aged 7 to 12 to sailing in a fun, safe, accessible and affordable way. It focuses on non-competitive learning through a supportive environment with structured sessions plans. Kids don’t need to have any sailing experience and they don’t have to be a member of a club to participate. All the equipment, including the boats, is provided.
Sailing teaches them about:
- team work – compromise, share, express thoughts and look after each other
- confidence to accomplish something new
- cognitive skills
- problem solving
- the weather and wind awareness
