Centerport Yacht Club (CYC) is seeking Sailing Instructors, a Head Sailing Instructor, and a Head Race Coach for the 2018 Summer Junior Sailing Program. The Junior Sailing Program at CYC fosters an inclusive community for sailors and families. Our program provides sailors the opportunity to experience racing, adventure sailing, paddling, and other fun activities in the marine environment. We offer half and full summer programs for Optimist, Blue Jay, Ideal 18, RS Feva, Laser, and C420 sailors from beginner to advanced skill levels. Our racing teams have historically been competitive at JSALIS events and beyond. Sailing Instructor applicants should have experience teaching sailors who range in age from 5 - 18 in single and double-handed dinghies. Collegiate level racing and keelboat experience are a plus. Head Sailing Instructor and Head Race Coach applicants should have extensive experience working with sailors of various ages and skill levels. Applicants should be independently motivated self-starters with a keen eye for risk management. Prior management experience is a plus. Some travel will be required for the Head Race Coach.
