Job Description

Alamitos Bay Yacht Club
ABYC, situated on sunny Alamitos Bay in Long Beach, California, is looking to hire junior and senior instructors for its 2024 summer sailing program. The program has a wide variety of sailors and coaches, from casual sailors enjoying a fun summer on the water, to competitive racers traveling around the state and country to compete.
Classes are offered in Optis, Lasers, FJs, and occasionally 420s and J-22s. These positions are full-time (40 hrs/week) during the 8-week summer session. Instructors are also encouraged to stay on part-time during the fall and spring to coach our after school and weekend classes.
Responsibilities include providing a safe, fun, and educational experience for students ages 8-18; supervising and mentoring newer instructors; and monitoring, evaluating, and recording student progress. Coaches in charge of the racing classes will have occasional weekend travel responsibilities for regattas around Southern California. All instructors report directly to the Sailing Director.
Please email your resume to Carter Brock at to apply. 
Job Requirements
The program is looking for enthusiastic and mature sailors who are passionate about sharing their love of sailing with younger students. The club provides competitive compensation and includes shift lunches. Senior instructors must be 18+ and have graduated high school. Junior instructors must be 16+ and entering at least 11th grade.
