Bay Shore Yacht Club (bsyc.com) is looking for a racing coach. The racing coach's primary responsibility is to prepare students for regattas. There are additional opportunities to provide group or private lessons to youths and adults.
Our club is located on the south shore of Long Island on the shore of the Great South Bay. We are a member of the Great South Bay Yacht Racing Association (gsbyra.org), which organizes weekly junior and adult regattas, training sessions, and other events.
Our program size is typically 40 to 75 students ranging in age from 7 to 16 years old. Our boats are Opti's, 420's, and Sunfish.
Lessons are typically held Monday thru Thursday with morning and afternoon sessions. Fridays are for regattas, which are held at various yacht clubs along the Great South Bay. Only the older/more experienced students participate in away regattas. We try to have mini regattas at our home club for the younger/less experienced students.
We are looking to add to our instructor lineup for Summer 2019. Salary is competitive. References required. Local candidates preferred.
