Keelboat Instructor Training

Whether you are old or young, being an instructor can be worthwhile and fulfilling; and there's a wide variety of opportunities from working part-time at a local club to full-time employment overseas.

There are RYA centres opening up all over the world who are always looking for instructors.

To become an instructor you must be a competent experienced sailor capable of sailing a training boat at 5 to 15 knots in a force 2 to force 4 wind and capable of handling small powerboats.

To transfer those skills to an instructional role we look at the following aspects:
