NotesIntelligent Sailing is a local and privately-owned school with a focus on one-on-one instruction. We are in search of a motivated, self-starting, and upbeat instructor that can integrate and become part of the Intelligent Sailing family. Our focus is on one-on-one instruction and the flexibility to teach and accommodate a wide range of students and their abilities. Our ideal instructor will be able to get on one of our boats, maintain a professional and positive attitude, accommodate students' needs, and will behave with the upmost discretion when encountering potential issues on the boat -- the point is to keep the students happy, and inform us of any potential issues on the boats that we may need to address prior to the next course. "It's always a sunny day" - even if you encounter an issue on-board, the point is to keep the student happy and the situation under control, with discretion. A positive attitude and extensive sailing experience is key, and we can make sure everyone has a wonderful experience. Work is steady, but can have lulls depending on the season. Please contact us with your resume/CV and a short paragraph explaining why you think you would be a good fit for the position.

Notes1st: Covid19 note: The USVIs do NOT allow visitors (our students) to enter the VIs unless they have a negative Covid test . This, along with the limited contact (2 to 6 people per class per week isolated together) gives us a good foundation for a safe week aboard. We specialize in week long, island hopping, "learn as you live it" classes. 205, 206 & 207 a plus. We are looking for live aboard (on our boats) instructors willing to commit for a couple of weeks to a full season (Nov though July). We pride ourselves in Quality Instruction. A good instructor MAKES THE DIFFERENCE. Candidates MUST be enthusiastic about sailing and get a charge out of seeing the "light bulbs" go off in their student's heads. This is why we limit ourselves to 4-5 core instructors. If you have these qualities, we are interested in you joining our team. Call or email. Cheers, Capt Scott.

NotesLooking for motivated sailors to join our team for this upcoming summer in the Caribbean. Sail Caribbean is a summer youth sailing program located in the BVI that focuses on sailing, diving, marine science, and leadership. We are searching for instructors willing to work and live with students on large sailing vessels for 2-3 weeklong programs between the months of May thru August. Sail Caribbean uses large catamarans and monohulls between 40-50 feet in length to teach sailing, but we also have smaller Colgate 26’s that we use to teach basic keelboat skills. Basic sailing skills are required but there is a 12-day long training period that focuses on handling larger vessels and working with students. Each boat is part of a larger fleet that has additional support from a Fleet Captain and Program Director. Please email me with any questions, and I can direct you to the formal application.
