The Nantucket Community Sailing seasonal instructor team is composed of a group of highly qualified instructors. All of our instructors are certified to teach and coach sailing - whether by US Sailing, the Irish Sailing Association or equivalent. They are additionally certified in First Aid, CPR, SafeSport, and the CDC's Head's Up Concussion Training. Many of our instructors are top sailors on college sailing teams and/or sail recreationally or competitively in their free time all over the world. Some NCS instructors learned to sail right here on Nantucket and bring a wealth of local knowledge. Most importantly, all of our instructors love sailing - and love teaching sailing!
