Job Description
We are in year 3 of building an exciting Juniors and Adult Sailing Program on Hatteras Island, Ocracoke Island.  Focusing on One Design Sailing - Hatteras Community Sailing has a position open for a US Sailing Certified Full Time Level 1-3 Instructor in Buxton, Hatteras Island, Outer Banks North Carolina.  Pay is commensurate with experience and comparable to anything on the East Coast.  We are looking for an energetic and adventurous Juniors Program coach who works extremely well with beginners through green fleet competitor levels on the Opti.  Our 420 Program is starting to take off this coming year (2nd year) and coaching will involve weekly summer camps for visitors plus our local resident member training programs that run 8 weeks long.  Short term temporary housing is available in the Sailing Center Office or bring your own live aboard boat to our dock.  Be forewarned that housing in the OBX is at a premium and hard to find.  Hatteras Sailing is working with other local regional organizations in the Outer Banks and our full time coaching position can easily turn into a year round full time position if the applicant has a passion for boatbuilding, sailmaking and other maritime heritage skills in the off season.  Likely next off season we will have a travel team doing winter regattas in the South.  Captains license or willingness to obtain a captains license can translate into additional income and gratuities for running daysailing charters.
Job Requirements
US Sailing Level 1 Instructor Certification required before starting in the Spring 2022. First Aid, CPR, Powerboating Safety. USCG License or willingness to obtain the license will be very beneficial. Experience with sailmaking, boatbuilding, boat repair are a plus and can lead to additional income and year round work.
