NotesWe teach all ASA levels, but I'm looking for a few people who will enjoy working with beginning sailors. Our 101 and 103 programs are long, over 24 hour each. If you are a great instructor, you'll have the pleasure of teaching without rushing through the curriculum. We teach 7 days a week, 12 months a year. If you're only available part time, our program makes it possible to schedule sessions in 4-5 hour increments so you can teach and still maintain other obligations. I'd like to learn more about your goals. Contact me at Bluewater Sailing. Best Regards, Elliot Zimmerman
