In Public

The Club is looking for an Opti Team Coordinator.

Optis are small single handed sailing dinghies for sailors ages 9 to 13.

The Opti Team typically practices once a week from April to October under the guidance of 2 experienced sailing school coaches from the club’s junior program.

The Team consists of a maximum of 9 sailors who have achieved at least the CanSail 2 qualification.

The Opti Team Coordinator’s duties include:

Setting up a schedule
Sending out reminder emails to participants
Coordinating with our 2 coaches
Assist with determining the cost to participants and subsequent billing, recording payments
Ensuring someone is available on the dock during practices
Ensuring that the Optis and coach boats are ready for each practice or race session
Checking weather conditions before sailors get on the water and cancelling practice or race if winds are too high.
Answering parent’s questions
Close up after practice and make sure all kids get picked up
Organize Opti Racing Team to participate in regattas as required.

The Opti Team Coordinator does not have to have any previous sailing experience, but it helps, as would experience herding cats.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

John Kyle,

Fleet Captain Dinghy
