The San Diego Yacht Club is seeking instructors and coaches for all levels of our program, from learn-to-sail classes to our competitive racing teams. SDYC proudly maintains one of the most prestigious Junior Sailing Programs on the West Coast, training with hundreds of youth sailors throughout the year. Our program operates out of a world class waterfront facility with a full-time equipment maintenance staff, over 80 club-owned boats, and large privately owned fleets.
Our Summer Program will begin with a staff training session June 12th – 16th, and end August 11th totaling eight weeks of coaching instruction. While our program would allow for flexibility regarding start dates, coaches must be able to commit to at least 6 weeks of the summer. Classes meet Monday- Friday, 8:30am to Noon and 1pm to 4:30pm, with some additional travel days to regional events. In the AM, we hold our introductory level courses in CFJs and Naples Sabots. Our afternoon program offerings include learn-to-race classes, Adventure Sailing (non-racing), and advanced racing in Sabots, Lasers, C420s, CFJs, 29ers, and J22’s.
