The mission of the EYC Jr. Fleet is to provide a Learn-to-Boat program that teaches the basics of boat handling, seamanship, safety, sportsmanship, and building friendships. EYC is not a racing program. EYC currently runs a 7 week summer program, fall/spring high school sailing, powerboat, and other programs. Candidates must be motivated, energetic, and enjoy working with kids and adults. Our fleet of boats includes 8 Optis, 6 Sunfiish, 6 Club FJs, 3 J-22s, 6 paddleboards, and 6 kayaks. We also teach powerboating in 17, 15, and 13 ft whalers. Instructors must be a minimum of 16 yrs. old, have strong dinghy sailing and powerboat experience. Prior teaching experience or working with kids a plus. All sailing instructor candidates must have Level 1, CPR, and 1st Aid, and criminal background check by start of classes. Instructors in training must be a 15 yrs. by start of program. Pay rate commensurate with experience. Interviews will be conducted over the upcoming holidays.
