Sail Newport and Ida Lewis Yacht Club's collaborative youth racing program, BCRP seeks experienced and enthusiastic coaches for the 2021 summer. Our Optimist, Laser, and C420 teams will be based in Newport RI but will regularly attend regattas beyond Narragansett Bay.
Our sailors strive to test themselves against the best, with aspirations of competing well at the national level. As such, ideal coach candidates will come with experience competing at a high level themselves, but also have at least a few seasons of coaching under their belts. Our coaches work only with their specific teams so their curriculum is expected to drill down into the details of campaigning in youth classes. We seek coaches who are equally skilled and passionate about teaching fine-tuning and tactics as they are teaching strong seamanship, sportsmanship, and the art of packing a 6-boat 420 trailer.
This collaborative program enjoys the resources to effectively take the show on the road with many multi-boat trailers, solid coachboats, engaged parents, and a dedicated Race Program Director to help with details.
Competitive pay, housing stipends, professional development, and sailing opportunities a-plenty come with this job. If you are a sailor, a summer (or 3!) of coaching in Newport RI needs to be on your bucket list.
