RYANI is currently recruiting for two lead coach roles for the Development Academy and Team Racing as well as a Women On Water Ambassador.

The lead coach of the Development Academy provides a supportive learning environment for junior sailors within the academy, sharing their passion towards the racing pathway to the younger generation in Northern Ireland.

Meanwhile, in the Team Racing Programme, the role of the lead coach is to help deliver the programme, with structured sessions to increase the knowledge of this developing area of sailing. Team racing coaches should ideally have an in-depth knowledge of team racing rules and tactics.

The Women On Water Ambassador is expected to lead and develop the Women On Water Development Programme. By providing a supportive learning environment for women within clubs and centres, RYANI’s aim is to encourage higher participation levels, upskill people across a variety of pathways and develop a passion for people to develop in their chosen pathway.
