INSTRUCTORS — FLORIDA AND THE BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS
Our courses are in such high demand, we are actively interviewing for qualified instructors to fill open positions at our six locations – four in Florida and two in the British Virgin Islands. Considered the best sailing jobs in the industry, Offshore Sailing School instructors are known for their excellent sailing knowledge and experience, and the ability to communicate that knowledge to clients with humility and patience. If you have excellent “people” skills, plus teaching experience on keelboats and cruising sail and power yachts we would like to talk to you. All Offshore Sailing School instructors must be US Sailing certified at the Basic Keelboat level or higher (or at time of hiring have the skills to pass these levels quickly), and hold a USCG license or have the experience to obtain one at the appropriate level. Candidates who wish to work in the United States must be U.S. citizens or carry a valid green card. Those who wish to work in the British Virgin Islands must have a valid work permit for that region. If you do not currently have one, we will help you with this process. It takes several months to apply for and get the permit.
