The Nyack Boat Club (“NBC”), 59 Gedney Street, Nyack, NY 10960 is seeking a
Director of Sailing (“DOS”) for its club-owned, eight Ideal boats (the “Fleet”) for the 2024 sailing season. The DOS will be responsible for the Fleet and the safe use of the Fleet by its adult members, including programming, maintaining the Fleet, teaching, supervising informal racing and overseeing the daily operation of the Fleet.
NBC is a member-owned club that supports recreational sailing on the Hudson River, helping members improve their sailing skills in a spirit of cooperation and friendship.
The Fleet regular programming is expected to include informal racing, Women’s sailing, Learn to Sail (“LTS”), and organized social sailing.
The LTS program is primarily for beginners, leading to certification in the Fleet but there is also coaching of intermediate and advanced sailors. Experienced NBC members assist the DOS with beginner LTS. The DOS reports to the Ideal Committee Chair.
The DOS will oversee and ensure the proper maintenance of the Fleet and related equipment so that the Fleet is available for member use as much as possible throughout the 2024 season. With assistance from members, the DOS will commission the Fleet for the 2024 season at NBC, rigging and setting for optimal use and bottom painting. The DOS will schedule four bottom cleanings with the assistance of volunteers from the Fleet.
Employment preferably will begin May 1, 2024 and end on October 15, 2024 and the DOS will work a 40 hour week. However, NBC will consider an applicant who is only available for a portion of this season or fewer hours per week.
As compensation, the DOS shall be paid a salary in the range of $30,000-$32,000 for the season. The payment schedule will be bimonthly. The payments shall be subject to mandatory deductions by the Employer NBC (i.e. federal & state taxes, Social Security, Medicare).
