The Position: Summer Camp Sailing Instructor
Catalina Island Marine Institute summer camps are looking to hire instructors for our summer sailing program.
Located at Toyon Bay on Catalina Island off the coast of southern California, the “Toyon Bay Yacht Club” seeks to employ those passionate about instilling a love of sailing in young people. You will be team teaching classes varying from basic sailing in Lasers to classes using 420s, Nacra 5.8 Catamarans and a Capri 22 keelboat, as well as basic and advanced windsurfing.
While we have a serious commitment toward the safety and education of our campers, life at the TBYC is about being as goofy as possible as well. As an instructor you will often be dressing in costumes being loud, dancing, planning evening activities and living life under a pseudo-”sail” name all summer.
The TBYC is synonymous with fun at Toyon Bay and you will be working with a team of other sailing instructors to maximize the experience for everyone involved.
If accepted as a sail instructor you will not only have a blast but also be trained in the use of a variety of chase boats as well as CPR and lifeguard certified if you are not already. This position runs from the end of May/early June until the middle of August and CIMI provides onsite room and board as well as a competitive salary.
At the Toyon Bay Yacht Club the hours are long and hard but the opportunity to have a positive impact on campers is unparalleled. We pride ourselves on the quality and work ethic of our staff and expectations are high. If this position sounds like a good fit and you are interested in teaching sailing in a fun environment we encourage you to apply.
