The North Shore Yacht Club, founded in 1871, located in Manhasset Bay, Long Island is seeking a junior sailing instructor who wishes to pass along their love of sailing. This is our 4th season with a successful and growing program. As we are still a relatively small program, we limit the number of applicants.

Instructor should be enthusiastic about working with young sailors of all experience levels The position is for a full time, Monday-Friday, salaried 8 week season beginning June 29th.
Candidates should be experienced with Optimists and Picos and be eager to motivate young sailors while providing a fun and safe environment to learn fundamentals and racing skills. The instructor will be responsible for creating their own lesson plans and implementing them. Candidates should also be prepared to provide suitable indoor programming when inclement weather prohibits sailing. The ability to recognize the need for and carry out minor maintenance and equipment repair is a plus.

Pay will be at hourly rate or overtime if applicable.
Applicants must have at minimum US Sailing Small Boat Level 1 Sailing Instructor, CPR & First Aid Certification, and US Powerboating Safe Powerboat Handling Certification.
