The 2017 City Sail season will run for eight weeks (June 28 - August 25, with a week of training), from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm five days a week, with the potential for additional night and weekend hours for those interested.   Instructors will work with small groups of 5 students on J/24 keelboats as part of a team of 6 instructors.  There are also work opportunities before and after City Sail.  Candidates must be comfortable working with children and operating a small keelboat with multiple passengers on a busy commercial waterfront.
