I am on the steering committee for the Little Washington Sailing Club, a nonprofit youth sailing program in Washington, NC. We are in our second year and are trying to find an instructor for our upcoming season. Just trying to help get the word out any way I can.
Here is the job description as posted on the U.S. Sailing website:
The Little Washington Sailing Club in Washington, NC is seeking instructors for its 2010 season of youth sailing lessons. Two classes per day for students age 10-18 will be held in two-week sessions from June 14 until Aug. 20. U.S. Sailing Level 1 Certification and CPR/First Aid Certification are required.
There will be 12 students per session, using a fleet of six Vanguard 420s. The instructor's job duties will include classroom and on-the-water instruction, administering a swimming test at the beginning of each session, and vessel care. Volunteers will be available to assist with instruction and operation of the chase boat.
The ideal candidate will have thorough knowledge of small boat sailing and enjoy teaching young sailors in a hands-on environment.
Please visit Downtown Washington on the Waterfront
for more information or e-mail dmoate (at) suddenlink (dot) net or jules (at) carolinawind (dot) com to apply.
Also, please note, there is a U.S. Sailing Instructor class available in May, so if someone is interested but doesn't have Level 1 Certification, we can help them get it. The program is 10 weeks, and this is a paid position.
