The Quissett Yacht Club
Junior Sailing Program (https://quissettyachtclub.org/)
is accepting applications for a 420 Race Team Coach for the summer of 2021,
which will run from approximately June 21 - August 24.
The team practices on weekdays sailing out of
Quissett Harbor, located on the Eastern side of Buzzards Bay in Falmouth, MA. Quissett has two 420 race classes: the 420
Junior Race Team, which practices from 10:15 am-12:15 pm, and the 420 Race
Team, which practices from 1:30 pm-4:30 pm.
420 Race Team members have at least one year of prior sailing experience
on the Junior Race Team, and usually several years of experience racing on the
QYC Opti Race Team.
The 420 Race Team generally participates in the
SMSA Grand Prix events—in 2021 this may include the Edgartown Regatta, Falmouth
Regatta, Scituate Jr. Regatta and the Beverly Jr. Regatta. The Jr. Race Team
usually participates in two regattas—the Vineyard Haven Jr. Regatta and Wild
Harbor Invitational. Public health
conditions may impact these regattas.Primary

- Planning and
instructing QYC classes that teach 420 fleet racing
- Coordinating and
communicating transport of equipment and QYC 420 sailors to and from regattas
