RC Staff Wanted

  • News
  • 3/27/2017 1:21:00 PM

The Minnetonka Yacht Club is looking for help in running sailing races this summer. If you already have sailing or boating experience, that's awesome, but we can use your help even if your experience is zero! Training is a big part of the program. We are offering part-time paid positions all summer. The club runs weekday races on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, with staff needed typically between about 4:30pm and 8:30pm. On weekends, we run races on Saturdays from 9:00am to 1:30pm, and morning races on Sundays from 8:30am to 12:30pm. The season runs from mid-May till mid-September, but even if you are just hoping for a fun summer job, and even if you only have a day or two available each week, we still can use your help! Likewise... if you are flexible, we may be able to schedule you as many as 4 or 5 days a week.  Please contact Minnetonka Yacht Club Race Manager Blake Middleton at myc@aol.com
