WHO WE ARE
A small island with big heart.
Cuttyhunk is the outermost of the Elizabeth Islands off the coast of Massachusetts. With a year round population of about 20 souls the summer population swells to several hundred. With very few cars, restaurants, and inns, it is a well know retreat and destination for sailors, artists/writers, fishermen, and families, many of whom have been coming to the island for generations.
A DAY IN THE LIFE
Meet your island home, your crew, and your gear
THIS IS YOUR HQ
Of course there won't be a whaler in your front yard, but you get the idea...
This island headquarters has a 2-bedroom/1 bathroom upstairs. It's not fancy, but hey, you can't beat the view overlooking the bay/your playground.
Introducing your arsenal
Founded in 1956, generations of families have built and contributed to the Yacht Club, which today has a fleet of 10 N10s, 6 lasers, 6 420s, 2 Cape Dory typhoons, and 2 new power (safety) boats. Some years our sailors participate in the Beverly Youth Regatta, and we typically host 2 informal regattas with Tiverton and Ida Lewis YCs. Our focus is on safety, fun, and enjoying the beauty of Buzzards Bay!
Hey, what are all these kids doing in your basement?
These are your students. Well, each year they change but they look a whole heck of a lot like this. In 2018 we had 100 kiddos between the ages of 6-16 participate in our sailing program over 8 weeks. Of course you won't be the only instructor, you'll be joined by a crew of other instructors to help you. They'll be your mateys, your scalleywags... (aargh, don't get us started with pirate talk).
Here's what we'll need from you
1. Participate in Opening (June 15-16) and Decommissioning (August 16-18) weekends, on-site orientation and training (week of 6/17) as well as entire 8 week season (classes run 6/24-8/16)
2. US Sailing Level 1 certification, CPR, and Safe Sailing certifications completed prior to June 15 2019
3. Willingness to have fun, be resourceful, be engaged in island community
