INSTRUCTOR APPLICATIONS DUE MAY 20, 2017

KINGSTON, NY – The Kingston Sailing Club and the Riverport Wooden Boat School at the Hudson River Maritime Museum announce the creation of the new “Riverport Sailing School”.

The youth program kicks off with two one-week pilot programs.  Children ages 10 to 13 will meet during the week of August 7 through August 11, and teens, ages 14 and up are scheduled for the week of August 14 through August 18.  Classes will run from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Two instructors are needed for the initial youth sailing program.  In addition to youth program instructors, the school will create a list of certified sailing instructors who will offer adult sailing lessons as well.  Adult lessons will be offered in a variety of formats, i.e., two-hour sessions on weekday evenings and four-hour lessons on Saturdays, aboard Riverport boats, on instructors’ boats or students’ boats.

Instructor candidate qualifications include extensive sailing experience, strong teaching experience, certification by US Sailing or American Sailing Association (see information below), or US Coast Guard Captain’s License, and age 18 or older.

For interested candidates who do not have the required certification, the US Sailing Small Boat Sailing Instructor Certification Level I, a 40-hour course with several pre-requisites, will be offered at the Riverport Wooden Boat School from June 12 through June 15.  Please go to www.ussailing.org for more information, and to sign up for the instructor training if you are interested, or contact Lisa Cline, HRMM Executive Director, lcline@hrmm.org
