Job Description

 Who you are: an experienced instructor with broad sailing experience and a passion to pass on your knowledge of the sport you love.  
Who we are: We have a great group of returning sailors in our RWB Opti racing fleet and we are looking for a racing coach to take them to the next level.  Saunderstown Yacht Club is a small sailing-centric club located on the West Passage of Lower Narragansett Bay, 10 minutes from the beaches in Narragansett and 15 minutes from Newport. Reliable seabreeze, minimal powerboat traffic, and beautiful scenery make this one of the best spots on the Bay for sailing and teaching. Our fleet consists of Blue Dragon prams, Open Bics, Optis, 420s, and new this year, RS Quests.
About our overall program: Historically, we have around 65 students across 5 classes for the duration of the summer. Our summer program length is 8 weeks, plus a setup week before the program and another 2-3 days at the end to break everything down. Compensation will be based on experience and will be comparable to similar programs.
Instructors should be comfortable teaching all levels from beginners to the racing team (although one applicant will be hired specifically as the racing team (Opti and 420) coach).
We have openings in the following areas:
  • Opti  RWB racing (local travel to regattas)

A full sailing resume, cover letter, contact information for at least two references, should be sent to
