Employment Opportunity – West Van Yacht Club

2018 Summer Job Posting

The West Vancouver Yacht Club is taking applications for the upcoming 2018 summer sailing season. WVYC is located in West Vancouver BC where Howe Sound meets Burrard Inlet Sailors relish the fact that WVYC is located in an ideal sailing environment. If there is wind anywhere, it’s here it’s very rare for sailing to be cancelled due to lack of wind. The Club is a leader on the North Shore and Lower Mainland in providing excellence in learn to sail programs for both juniors and adults. This quality and excellence is the level to which all members and staff of the West Vancouver Yacht Club aspire to maintain and improve.

All WVYC staff are experienced, trained, and certified by Sail Canada to offer Sail Canada accredited courses and a variety of other programs unique to our club. Learners enjoy quality sail instruction, a very low student‐to‐instructor ratio, and the best sailing equipment on the Lower Mainland. Our sail training programs introduce basic sailing skills, develop existing skills and improve racing performance for youth and adult sailors in a fun and safe environment. Come sail with us and experience the exhilaration of sailing, learning and understanding yachting traditions.

We are looking for all levels of CANSail coaches who have a passion for sailing and enjoy passing that on to others. Work is available for all levels of CANSail coaches for LTS camps running Mondays through Fridays, with opportunities for evening and weekend shifts. Along with competitive salaries, awesome lunches for $2 a day, WVYC will reimburse your instructor course fees that are required to teach based on the number of weeks you work for us.
