The Irish National Sailing & Powerboat School is continuing to expand careers in the marine leisure industry beyond the traditional school/college age cohort. Demand for training has shifted and no longer can sailing and powerboat training be considered an exclusive Summer pursuit. The INSS has never shied away from adapting to new challenges and have long since dispensed with the notion that the status quo is the only way to develop sailing and powerboating in Ireland.

The INSS recently launched an internship programme culminating in instructing qualifications for the forthcoming September to May period. Now they’re inviting experienced sailors and powerboaters who are either already retired or nearing retirement to consider undertaking training to become instructors in various disciplines and pass on their immense skills.

Sailors and Powerboaters Wanted

Training will be provided to candidates to get them to the level as follows:

  • Powerboat Instructors
  • Keelboat Instructors
  • RYA Cruising Instructors (yachting courses)

The INSS is keen to hear from any prospective participants on this programme. The format of the programme will involve training to iron out any bad habits developed with an instructor course at the end. From then on, the new instructor would be invited to work on an ad-hoc basis on our busy Keelboat, Powerboat and Yacht Cruising Scheme courses.

Chief instructor Kenneth Rumball says he would be delighted to chat with prospective candidates, with an anticipated timeframe for the first round of training to run this Autumn, Winter and Spring with candidates qualifying in time for the busier Summer period.
