Jr. Sailing
CIT Program

Copy of 2015_Duog_helping_kids.jpg

The CIT program has been redesigned for 2024. Now more than ever, CITs will be involved in teaching young children how to sail. Prior sailing experience is mandatory. This is a great gateway to a future position teaching sailing at camps, yacht clubs, and sailing schools. Port Sailing School does not guarantee future employment.


CITs join us for free! 

*PSS can sign community service hours
