More About TCYC: Texas Corinthian Yacht Club is a small and friendly club on Galveston Bay
in Kemah, Texas. Our program facilitates sailing for roughly 50 youth sailors who have
completed 1st grade. We also support adult sailing, with races mostly in Sunfish and Sonars.
Our sailors are always improving their sailing skills by exploring different aspects of sailing. We
offer windsurfing, Opti, Sunfish, Laser, and 420 classes. TCYC celebrated its 80th anniversary in 2018!

Because we have a small program, we can offer unique opportunities to our sailing coaches.
Professional development is available and encouraged. Also, we are willing to support a
candidate if he or she is interested in developing a paid internship.

Working at Texas Corinthian Yacht Club is a terrific way to build your skills and resumé while

positions offer an opportunity to strengthen public speaking and leadership skills while

thinking skills! Get some practice with your customer service skills and more!

Mission Statement: The junior sailing program’s goal is to support TCYC’s mission of educating members in the art of sailing, seamanship, boat handling and related arts, maintain a clubhouse, pier and anchorage for the recreation of its members, and to support and encourage participation in national and international yacht racing. As the Sailing Director, my aim is to help students realize that everyone has the innate ability to overcome challenges to reach a goal.
