Job Description
Sheridan Shore Sailing School is located in Wilmette Harbor in Lake Michigan. The School is a short walk to the commuter train to the city of Chicago and less than 5 minutes from the campus of Northwestern University in Evanston. SSSS has been teaching sailors for over 80 years, and is seeking individuals to help us continue delivering high quality education to our students.
We are looking for experienced and enthusiastic sailing coaches and instructors to join our team for the 2022 season.  There are open positions for Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced classes in our Opti, Pram, and 420 fleets.  Additionally, we teach students in ages from 5 to 17 years of age between Sea Squirts, Buoy Youth, Siebel, and Race Team programs. 
We now have some 75 boats. We replaced and upgraded much of our RIB fleet of Zodiac Coach Boats. The Sailboat fleet includes 24 Club 420s (7 new 2022), 28 Prams (10 new 2022), 6 Optimists, and keelboats of a J70, and 3 J22s added in 2022, plus 6 RS Fevas for the Siebel Sailors program.
Job Requirements
Applicants should possess their US Sailing Small Boat Level 1 certification, or plan to have for the upcoming season. Special consideration will be given for those who also have their Siebel certification.

Versatility in ability to teach is especially valuable, as is willingness to be flexible in working across different programs. Compensation is competitive and commensurate with experience.

Our J22 fleet is used to teach adult sailing lessons. Instructors applying for this position should already possess their US Sailing Basic Keelboat Instructor certification.

If you are interested in joining our team, please send your resume AND sailing resume to Interim Director, John Kiener at
