Moreton Bay Sailing Club

The MBBC is an accredited Discover Sailing centre and affiliated with Yachting Queensland. We run two course here at the Club: Tackers and Learn to Sail.



Tackers is an introductory, fun, games based sailing program designed by Yachting Australia for kids aged 7 – 12. Kids interested in doing the Tackers Program don’t require any previous sailing experience. Tackers is taught in purposely built and designed Ozi Optis, which only have one sail and made of plastic which makes them a great boat for young children.
