The Head Sailing Instructor creates and implements sailing instruction programs that are fun and train students to be safe and independent sailors. He/she must be able to teach these skills in sailboats with students and/or instructors. He/she guides the instructors as they develop their teaching skills and encourages them to perfect their delivery of instruction in a fun way that encourages their students to become better sailors. At all times the head instructor maintains fun and positive relations with the sailing staff while making sure they stay on task.

Students must be treated with respect and courtesy at all times. Students range from 8 to 16 years in age and have skill levels varying from beginner to advanced.
