The role of the sailing instructor is to teach his or her portion of sailing courses, and to contribute actively to the team and improvement of the Junior Sailing Program. The sailing instructor must recognize that his or her actions are observed and emulated by the staff, club members and students, and as such one should act as a positive role model at all times. Sailing staff are the face of the CYC sailing program and instructors should ensure they are promoting the sport of sailing in a positive way for both social and race sailing. Housing can be provided for out of state instructors.
