Spend your summer in the picturesque Port Townsend, WA at Northwest Maritime, as a Learn to Sail Instructor, where you'll guide youth in mastering sailing on a fleet of Optis, 420s, and FJs. You'll work with students aged 8 to 18, from beginners to advanced sailors, fostering their skills and passion for the sport.

We have opportunities for both Lead and Assistant Instructors! Lead Instructors will oversee the program under the direction of the Summer Program Coordinator, teaching classes, supervising assistant instructors, and liaising with parents.

The season kicks off with staff orientation/training and pre-season setup and concludes with a postseason program teardown.

Join us for a summer of sailing, leadership, and unforgettable experiences!
