Working with WSA

Spend the summer doing the best job in Whistler!

WSA offers CANSail accredited summer camps for kids and teens, as well as adult courses and racing clinics for our members. We are looking for all levels of CANSail coaches who have a passion for sailing and enjoy passing that on to others.

WSA is located on Alta Lake in Whistler BC, beneath Blackcomb and Whistler mountain. Alta Lake acts as a funnel from notoriously windy Squamish, resulting in a regularly timed thermal wind hitting WSA shores every day. It’s very rare for sailing to be cancelled due to lack of wind.

Please contact us if you think you would be a fit for our team!


WSA is always looking for mature and experienced individuals to run the Kids & Youth Sailing Camps and Adult programs for the season. Candidates will have:

  • Sail Canada certified or equivalent (courses available in Vancouver)

  • Have experience teaching sailing to adults and/or kids

  • Hold a current Emergency First Aid with CPR certification (i.e. through St. John’s Ambulance, Red Cross, etc.) or equivalent

  • Valid Pleasure Craft Operators Card (PCOC) and hold an authorized boat rescue certificate

  • Demonstrates qualities including (but not limited to): safety awareness, flexibility, time management, and leadership

If you think you will be a fit for our team, please contact Francois Hebert, General Manager at
