Job Description
The Quassapaug Sailing Center, a non-profit educational institution, offers sailing lessons under the watchful eyes of certified instructors. QSC is located on beautiful Lake Quassapaug in Middlebury, Connecticut. Lake Quassapaug is a mountaintop, spring-fed lake with a motorboat speed limitation of 5 mph. The lake's unique characteristics and moderate winds make it an ideal location for sail training. Our sailing programs develop competent sailors that can use their developing "lifetime" skills for small boat racing, pleasure, or large boat sailing in coastal waters.
We are looking for interested sailing instructors, who would like to instruct Young Children this summer. Contact
