Join the Wildwind-team this summer!
With clients and staff from all over Europe, Wildwind in Greece is the summer hotspot for serious sailors. We’re now looking for additional sailing instructors for the 2022 season.
If you are not already familiar with Wildwind, we are based in Vassiliki on the Greek island of Lefkas; our sailing area is a bay extending to 5 km and with wind conditions Force 4-6 most afternoons of the summer. We previously hosted the Hobie 16 European championships, and we sponsor a number of events and class associations. We are both RYA and VDWS recognised.
If you are a qualified instructor comfortable sailing a variety of boats in high winds, often with novice crew, then you might like to join our team! Obviously, you’ll improve your own high wind skills through the season and have the opportunity to try out our fleet of over 70 dinghies and catamarans ranging from Optimists to 49er, and Hobie Dragoons to Tornados. Our clients vary from absolute beginners to Olympic champions. The village and the island are truly beautiful and the atmosphere both on and off the water is excellent – our fun and laid-back ambiance is perhaps our most important asset! (Oh, and we were given the gold award for the BTA best small sport/activity holiday company too!)
Our season runs from 25 April to 10 October, and ideally, we like you to stay for the entire duration. However, we do need additional staff at peak season in July and August as well. The minimum period of employment is 12 weeks.
We do pay a living wage along with accommodation on a shared basis and a contribution to travel expenses. We do expect you to be near-fluent in English and every other language you speak is a bonus; we’re especially looking for German, Dutch, Swedish and Italian speakers.
