We Are Looking for an Amazing Instructor to Join Our Team!

The Calgary Yacht Club is the largest educational centre for both youth and adult sailing in Alberta. Committed to the development of sailors, the Club runs a comprehensive program led by qualified and dedicated instructors where the focus is on participation and fun as much as it is on skill development. The program aims to develop life-long sailors and a love of the sport. CYC also boasts a robust youth racing program, masters program and Thursday night racing series.

We are seeking a committed instructor with a passion not only for sailing but also children and their development. The successful candidate will bring with them creativity, energy and maturity. It is not very often that a position comes open at CYC, so it is important that we find the candidate who best fits our culture and community.

Successful candidates must have:

  • Current Sail Canada Instructor Certification, with a minimum of one year instructing
  • Current Sail Canada Instructor prerequisites (Standard First Aid, CPR, PCOC, Boat Safety)
  • Instructor dues paid and registered with Sail Canada for 2019
  • Police Background Check (Vulnerable Sector Screening for the Junior Sailing program), 
  • Familiarity with 420 and Optimist rigging and sailing
  • An interest in instructing Adult Learn to Sail 
  • Racing experience not necessary but considered an asset

We Offer:

  • A competitive wage commensurate with experience and qualifications
  • Free instructor shirts
  • A community environment where you are encouraged and mentored to reach your full potential
