Buoyed Up


Buoyed Up with Tackers, is an initiative which assists vulnerable, at-risk children aged 7-12 years to participate in the Tackers Junior Sailing program as a way to build confidence, self-esteem and engage in an active lifestyle.

Facilitated by the Canberra Yacht Club, the program provides children from disadvantaged backgrounds with a unique fun-based opportunity that will enhance their general life skills and capabilities. Children participate in the Tackers program, either during the school day or through holiday programs and weekends.

Our nationally accredited Instructors deliver a safe, fun, challenging program that creates an environment where students can thrive. The Tackers Pathway is important in developing skills and allowing participants to transition into club membership and ongoing participation.
