The instructor will work alongside the Head Instructor. The position is for a full time Monday-Friday salaried 10-week program beginning May 31st, ending August 6th. The position could lead to a permanent employment position for the right candidate.

Candidates should be familiar with at least several of the following boats: Optimists, O’pen Skiffs, Lasers, Sunfish, 420s, Hobie Waves. Proficiency in power boat handling is required. Candidates are expected to provide and promote a fun and safe learning environment, focused on safety, boat handling skills, and the basics of sailing. Indoor and outdoor activities, including knots, games, snorkeling, and drills are common when undesirable weather causes sailing to not be an option.
