Job Description
Devon Yacht Club is hiring Sailing Instructors for Summer 2020! Live and work in Amagansett, NY, in the Hamptons and enjoy the best summer of your life.

The Devon Junior Yacht Club (DJYC) teaches young sailors (ages 4-15) the art of seamanship in a variety of boats. Optis, Sunfish, Lasers, 420s, and Hobie Waves are incorporated into daily midweek instruction. Instructors lead classes in both the morning and afternoon over a 9-week season. Introductory AM classes for younger sailors and afternoon racing & recreational instruction for older sailors take place Monday-Friday. Instructors work one weekend day to assist with adult clinics, fleet maintenance, rentals, and race committee duty for the Alerion Express 28 & PHRF fleets.

Additional income opportunities include private lessons and crewing on privately-owned big boats on weekends.

Racing Instructors will travel to a handful of local regattas with junior sailors and equipment. Experienced instructors can also assist with adult clinics midweek on certain mornings.

All instructors should be available from June 22nd through August 28th. The Program hosts approximately 70 Junior Sailors.

Limited housing is available for the right candidate, and nutritious meals are provided.
