Typically 40-50 sailors over the school year across all of our School Year Programs and 130-150 sailors over the Summer Learn to Sail season. Our program is currently working with US Sailing as one of 10 beta-test Youth Programs for the Skill Up App and we have a great relationship with them and with our local clubs that we look forward to seeing continued.

The VYBA is located on an island with easy access from the dock to 3 local bays and an inlet to the Gulf of Mexico.

The Program Director we are seeking will be safety-orientated, passionate about the sport, and able to fit in well with our team. The current Program Director is leaving due to family obligations, so if you have questions about the position feel free to reach out and ask! Pay is commensurate with experience.
