Portland Yacht Club, Falmouth, Maine, seeks motivated, experienced, and talented Race Team Coaches for Summer 2024 and beyond. We are working hard to create a next-level competitive program and have plans to support it going forward. This is a unique opportunity to help really grow a program/team. The Club has made an important commitment and investment in this program, with more news to come, and we could not be more excited to share our plans with outstanding candidates! Our program has a full fleet of Optimists, club 420's and we now have 2 i420 for training and potential campaigning. We also plan to offer some introduction to foiling lessons, likely with the Waszp.
This is a summer position, but it absolutely could include fall/winter/spring coaching and travel team opportunities with incredible growth potential, and certainly full-time potential. Pay is very competitive and commensurate with experience. Housing is a possibility for the right candidate(s).
Portland Yacht Club is a short drive from the dynamic downtown Portland and has numerous after-work racing opportunities in Etchells, J24's and PHRF. PYC celebrated its 150th anniversary in April 2019. Maine is an incredible place to be in the summer. The Club's facilities provide outstanding water access for Optimist sailing.
We also support foiling and have waszp/moth interest here, and we'd love to see and support our coaches pursue their sailing goals in dinghy sailing.
Classes are structured in 4 separate two-week sessions. PYC’s well-designed curriculum guides coaches while offering opportunity for innovations in instruction. Competitive salaries are offered and based on experience.
We are opening interviews right now and look forward to meeting coaches who share our energy and passion; please don't hesitate to contact us to ask about this program, our goals, and what we have to offer.
