GLYC is an accredited Discover Sailing Centre. Depending on demand and resources we run School Holiday Tackers programs  (in the club’s ‘Ozi Opti’ sailing dinghies).

School Holiday Program places are limited, so we recommend completing your registration early. Unfortunately we cannot run any school holiday programs without a sufficient quota to make it financially viable. If this is the case you will be notified asap and given a full refund.

This year’s Autumn Tackers Learn-to-Sail programs are running from Monday 8 to Friday 12 April 2024, from 9:00am to 1:00pm each day.

Registration is now open from the links below until Thursday 28 March.
Please be aware, the Australian Sailing system assumes the person completing the form is the person (child) participating in the course.  So it is your childs details that you need to open an Australian Sailing account for in order to register for the course, not yourself.  Please ensure you enter your childs name and details.
