Job Description
Kennebunk Beach Improvement Association (www.kbia.net) is a 100+ year old summer, community-based, not for profit organization that offers a variety of recreational and enrichment programs. Our signature program is sailing and we are seeking a Race Coach who has experience teaching sailing to join our vibrant waterfront team for the summer of 2020. Our program runs nine weeks, starting June 22th and ends on August 22th. There is a two day staff orientation on the weekend of June 20th & 21st.

Our spectacular facility is located on a tidal cove in Kennebunk Beach, Maine. Learn-to-sail classes are taught in the cove and more advanced classes are taught on the ocean. KBIA’s fleet is comprised of Optimists, Lasers, 420s, and a day sailor. Support vessels include multiple outboard Boston Whalers and a Rib Craft.

We offer flexibility, a competitive salary, and the chance to live in a classic New England beach community that is within 90 minutes of Boston and 35 minutes to Portland. Housing may be available on site.
Job Requirements
The race coach position calls for a versatile team player who can teach at all levels, but especially with our racing classes. The ideal candidate:

is an experienced sailing instructor
is a former or present competitive sailor
has or is willing to obtain a Level I US Sailing Certification

Having a USCG launch or Captain’s license is a plus and ideally the candidate is able to work prior to the start of classes getting the boats into the water and after the close of classes getting the boats stored for the winter.

The Racing Coach reports to the Waterfront Director and is supported by Counselors and Counselors in Training (CITs). The Racing Coach is responsible for the instruction, supervision and management of the assigned junior sailing classes. Most of our racers compete at the Green Fleet level; we are looking to grow our Championship fleet over the course of the season. KBIA sends sailors to the weekly MIRC regattas around Southern and Mid-Coast Maine and New Hampshire.

Please send a cover letter, resume, list of references, and compensation expectations to employment@kbia.net. No phone calls, please. Compensation is competitive and commensurate with experience; on-site accommodations may be available for qualified candidates.
