Job Description

  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 responsibilities of the 420 Race Coach include:
  • Planning and instructing QYC classes that teach 420 fleet racing
  • Coordinating and communicating transport of equipment and QYC 420 sailors to and from regattas
  • Coaching QYC 420 competitors at regattas
