Looking for an exciting, interactive and social activity for the kids these school holidays? Check out the popular Tackers 1 - Having Fun program, hosted by Nedlands Yacht Club.

This unique program runs from Monday 16th to Friday 20th January 2017 and is ideal for 7 to 12 year olds.

Over the five fun-filled days, from 8.30am to 12.30pm, children will be introduced to sailing in a safe and supportive atmosphere.

The program is facilitated by Australian Sailing certified instructors and children will participate in both on-water and off-water games.

If your child has already completed Tackers 1, they can join Tackers 2 - Tricks and Techniques, which is also running from Monday 16th to Friday 20th January 2017, from 8.30am to 12.30pm.

Last minute spots are currently available for both Tackers 1 and Tackers 2. To secure a place, simply visit the website and enrol online or call Graeme Pennifold on 0419 958 642 for more information.

The participation fee is $295 (includes required equipment and membership for the current sailing season). Discounts available for NYC members and additional family members.

Teenagers and Adults can also learn to sail this summer by enrolling in the 6-week Start Sailing 1 and 2 course, commencing on Sunday 22nd January 2017, from 8.30am to 12pm. This interactive course is ideal for beginners aged 13 years and over and is specifically designed to develop self-confidence as well as teamwork and sailing skills.

The course includes an introduction to fundamental boat handling skills, essential safety knowledge and will enable the participant to safely sail a small boat in light winds without guidance.

Bookings are now open for the Start Sailing 1 and 2 Courses. To secure a place, simply visit the website and enrol online.

The participation fee is $295 (includes required equipment and membership for the current sailing season). Discounts available for NYC members and additional family members.

Nedlands Yacht Club also invites adults to "Try Sailing" for FREE any Sunday. Just come down to the Clubhouse between 11.30am and 12pm and you can join a crew. No experience is needed - just a desire to have fun! If you can get a group together (4 or more), Graeme is happy to work out a course for you as well - so contact him via sailing@nyc.org.au or call 9386 5496.

Nedlands Yacht Club is also presenting their 5th Annual Australia Day Fundraiser on Thursday 26th January 2017 from 4pm to 9.30pm. Bring the whole family for a fun day of sun, sand and water!

You can relax and have a picnic on the foreshore, a BBQ with mates, enjoy catering from the Galley or check out some of Perth's best food trucks! The Club bar will also be serving up drinks!

The kids will love the 'Giant Slip and Slide' and there will be great views of fireworks later in the evening. Register your attendance here.
