Kingston Beach Sailing School - TACKERS

For many young sailors their sailing journey starts with the Kingston Beach Sailing School (KBSS), an initiative of the Kingston Beach Sailing Club. The School was founded to provide a professional approach to sail training and to cater for the increasingly large number of people who wish to learn to sail.

The School offers beginner and intermediate sailing programs for children and adults. It also supports pathways for KBSC members who want to participate in the YA Training and Development scheme to become Instructors or Assistant Instructors.

The School’s primary aims and functions are to:

  • Share knowledge and provide instruction in water safety, sailing and seamanship

  • Run nationally accredited syllabuses and programs developed by Yachting Australia Training and Development scheme.

  • Raise the profile of water activities, in particular sailing, within the Kingborough and greater Hobart communities

Kingston Beach Sailing Club is an official Yachting Australia “Discover Sailing Centre”
