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.

NotesSailing Instructors. We are an ASA sailing school and sailboat charter company in the California Delta since 2004, 1 hour northeast of San Francisco Bay, with classes offered in the Delta and in San Francisco Bay. We offer Basic Keelboat through Advanced Coastal Cruising. We also have introductory sailing lessons/day trips and sailboat maintenance classes. All of our classes are semi-private with two students and one instructor on the boat. We find that this allows for a safe and relaxed atmosphere and an excellent learning environment. We have sailing classes in the Delta during the spring and summer, and teach classes in the north SF bay in the fall and winter. The sailing conditions in the California Delta are similar to the San Francisco Bay with a little less wind and less current. There is deep water and the temperature is about 20 degrees warmer in the Delta than in the Bay. We are looking for personable sailing instructors who are USCG licensed and ASA Instructor certified. We are particularly interested in those sailing instructors who are comfortable sailing on the San Francisco Bay and Delta and are enthusiastic in sharing their love of sailing. Please contact owner Alan at
