Description

Want to spend your summer on the Mediterranean? Trek Adventures are seeking to employ a Yacht Trainer for the 2019 season running from May to October.   

 

Working under the Yacht Manager in this hands-on role, you will be responsible for the teaching of our Learn to Sail courses, ensuring that they are delivered to Sea-Trek and IYT guidelines. You’ll work alongside our other yacht trainers, so excellent customer service and a friendly approachable style is incredibly important. Some basic maintenance of the fleet of yachts will be required, ensuring standards are maintained to a high level.
