Wanna Teach Sailing?

Three spots are open, wide open, for US Sailing Level 1 instructor training December 16-19 at Encinal Yacht Club in Alameda. With Northern California seeing shortages of certified Level 1 instructors (these are often college kids in summer jobs), your local clubs and community sailing leaders are trying to do something about it. US Sailing has stepped up, and this four-day program is part of the deal. Could there possibly be a better part-time or summer job for a young sailor?

Do you have what it takes to teach sailing?

Don’t put it off, and if these three slots fill up without you, contact Kimball Livingston for the next steps.

The minimum age for Level 1 training is 16. After that, you can take it as far as you want. Here is a link to the details, and be advised, this may take a while to load. It’s a test to make sure you have enough patience to be a teacher.
