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: 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, Optimists, 420s, and RS Quests.
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 two applicants will be hired specifically as the racing team (Opti and 420) coaches).
We have openings in the following areas:
  • Instructional level (no travel, learn to sail)
  • Adventure sailing in various craft (non-racing classes, no travel)
  • Racing Program (minimal travel to NBYA regattas on Narragansett Bay, day travel only)

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