GirlsGoSailing.com is a recent development of Miramar Sailing.
We are seeking a female RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Instructor to join our team between October 2017 and May 2018.
The successful applicant will be working alongside our Chief Instructor, Pippa, to deliver RYA Yachtmaster (Sail) Scheme courses to all students but especially to female groups. All RYA courses are run by Miramar Sailing School.
Girls Go Sailing has developed from our past experience of the many female sailors who have come to us seeking the confidence to manage a yacht when their male companion (usually the skipper!) becomes incapacitated.
Another factor is that women tell us they find men often assume they are not interested, or physically capable of being a useful crewmember, and as a result men tend not to involve their female companions in the art of sailing!
There is a tendency for the woman’s role on board to be limited to cooking, cleaning and serving beer!
We feel that ladies will appreciate the opportunity to learn the skills required to crew, and even skipper a yacht, in the company of like-minded female companions.
We must also not forget the fun that girls can have when they get together without the constraints of men on board!
Pippa has years of sailing and training experience with several RYA Instructor qualifications to her name.
She is a highly respected sailor within the Caribbean community who is always patient and helpful to our students and instructors.
The successful applicant will be equally patient with an emphasis on expert instruction in the RYA syllabus, but above all will deliver courses to the highest standard in a fun and convivial atmosphere. She will have at least 2 years experience as a YMI.
We are offering:
• Freelance instructing and charter skipper work.
• The standard Caribbean daily pay rate.
• Low cost accommodation either in the school villa or on board. (Local accommodation options are available if off site living is preferred). We are based in Jolly Harbour Marina Village on the west coast of Antigua.
• Free Wi-Fi.
• Laundry facilities.
• Fantastic sailing conditions throughout the Caribbean with warm sunshine, blue water and steady breezes.
Pippa looks forward to welcoming you to the team for this exciting opportunity.
