Attention Young Sailors!

2021 Program Committee Positions Available

Would you like to help with sailing instruction for beginning and intermediate classes?

This summer, the sailing program is looking for sailors to fill two different positions this summer. 

Assistant Sailing Instructors. (1 or 2 openings) This is a paid position that will involve working closely with the head instructors Molly and Grace Skelton for teaching levels 1 and 2 of sailing lessons. Assistant Instructors will work afternoons, Monday-Friday during the seven weeks of lessons (June 28-August 13). It is very likely that they will also work the week of June 21-25 with a smaller group of students in the afternoons.

Requirements: Applicants should be at least 15 years old and have completed up through Level 3 sailing instruction (or the equivalent if they have learned at other clubs). 

Junior Assistant Sailing Instructors: (1 or 2 openings) This unpaid volunteer position allows you to improve your own sailing skills by sharing them with younger students. It may also provide useful training for possible employment as an assistant sailing instructor in future years. (This possibility depends on staffing needs.)

We anticipate the position will involve working five afternoons, Monday-Friday, for the seven weeks that are slated for the summer lessons (June 28-August 13). The instructor will work with the Level 1 and Level 2 classes for the seven weeks. If you anticipate having problems working every day for any reason, please explain them in your letter. We understand that it is important to be flexible with a volunteer position. 

Applicants should have completed Level 1 and Level 2 sailing instruction (or the equivalent if they have learned at other clubs) and should be at least 14 years old.

Applicants: If you are interested in either of these positions, please submit by noon on Saturday, May 15, a one-page letter explaining why you are interested in the position and what skills or experience you might bring. In addition, please provide a short resume (a list of your educational and other experience). Please pay special attention to any qualifications related to teaching sailing).
