Reports to - Youth Program Director 

HRCS's City Sail summer camp offers sailing and leadership education throughout the summer to 250 students ages 12 to 17. 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. Our ideal instructor is personable, flexible, and able to responsibly assess and mitigate risk on the water.


Pay ranges from $20.00- $23.00 and is commensurate with experience and certifications/ licenses (courses may be offered for these certifications if candidates are not already certified).
