NotesIntelligent Sailing is a local and privately-owned school with a focus on monohulls and 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 and a short paragraph explaining why you think you would be a good fit for the position.
