Program Objectives: GHYC Junior Sail is dedicated to providing quality instruction, and an opportunity for children to gain exposure to sailing in a safe and fun environment. We are a growing program looking for positive leaders to take ownership of the program and help us reach our potential.
Our employees must be capable of recognizing the individual needs of each child, working with them in a positive and constructive manner, maintaining records on the skill development of each child, and providing a fun experience. Employees must also be responsive to feedback and ready to grow.
About our Team: Narrows Race Team, combining both GHYC Junior Sail and Tacoma Yacht Club Junior
Sail, is a unique partnership between two programs overseen and supported by the GHYC Junior Sail under the
leadership of the Sailing Director. The race team has four programs, Opti Green Fleet, Opti Champ, Junior Varsity and Varsity (Lasers & 420s). Our Opti program is growing and needs a dedicated individual to help it thrive. Skills in the program range from our Opti Green Fleet sailors who will be attending their first events this summer, to our Opti Champ Fleet sailors who will be competing at the top of the regional Opti fleet.
