Job Description

Sail1Design seeks a motivated, driven person to join our team, and serve as a coach for the S1D Sailing Team. The coach, along with our staff, will train a very motivated and talented group of youth sailors in i420 and Optimist, at our new home venue in Annapolis, Maryland. We sail out of a marina where we can reach the very best sailing conditions Annapolis has to offer, very quickly.

As it is now, coaching the S1D Sailing Team is a part-time position. We do have options for a qualified applicant to create more of a full-time opportunity. We are willing to be creative to figure out how to make this work for the right person. To make this a full-time position, we could help provide ancillary coaching/sailing management opportunities to fit the candidate, which could include:

  • high school coaching
  • private sailing lessons
  • some pro sailing opportunities
  • work/job with a professional sailing organization

We are looking for a passionate, knowledgeable high-performance coach who is willing to help our kids reach the next level. While our home base is Annapolis, the team has a small training facility on the Gunpowder River in conjunction with Chesapeake Experience, just north of Annapolis. Our team also has a targeted travel schedule for major Optimist and i420 sailing events, providing coaching, logistics, and support.


Job Requirements
Optimist knowledge is required, i420 is highly desired; personal Optimist sailing success is highly encouraged.
Coaching experience, passion for excellence a requirement.
Willingness to help build a world-class sailing program.
While home base is Annapolis, the coach will travel to various Chesapeake Bay and regional regattas.
Goal is to prepare our sailors to work toward becoming world-class sailors.
For more information, please send letter and resume, and we will be happy to respond and discuss.
