Job Description

Cedar Point Yacht Club (CPYC) is seeking experienced Laser Sailor to Instruct our robust laser fleet. We run an 8-week program plus a training week for a total of 9 weeks from June 14 to August 13. Work alongside 9 other sailing instructors under the guidance of Head Coach, Internationally recognized race coach Tino Galán.

Founded in 1887, CPYC is located on Long Island Sound in Westport, Connecticut and is a three-time US Sailing One Design Club of the Year. CPYC is a LISOT and USODA development location and host to the 2021 RS FEVA North American Championship. We are also hosting Jr. Race Week this year which draws a large Laser Fleet.

Classes focus on boat handling fundamentals, seamanship, and sportsmanship while building towards racing performance and tactical skills needed to compete at the regional level and beyond. Our Jr. Sailing fleets include Opti, Feva, C420, Laser Radial and Laser Standard, as well as a Jr. Big Boat Program. We will also be introducing 29ers to our sailors this summer.

The Laser coach will have their own motorboat and will teach a morning Opti class and then the Laser group in the afternoon. Travel to regattas is necessary.

Job Requirements
We are seeking enthusiastic college-aged instructors (18+) who have both prior racing and instructing experience, as well as:

• US Sailing Level 1 Certificate
• Current First Aid/CPR Certificate
• Safe Powerboat Handling Certificate
• CT Safe Boating Certificates

CPYC will help you complete all certificates before our program start date and reimburse you if you do not have them already. We guarantee salary on bad weather days, provide overtime, extra pay for overnight and weekend regattas. Instructors can earn extra money on weeknights and weekends by teaching private lessons to program kids and members (you'll have access to our club equipment to do so).
