All DSAO staff are exceptionally qualified individuals that meet the needs of our members. Most have been full-time students studying disciplines such as science, nursing, business, early childhood education, occupational therapy and others. Their common link is their passion for the sport of sailing and their desire to share sailing with everyone.


Working at the DSAO was a one of a kind experience. It was extremely rewarding to see the positive impact my work had on the lives of many others. I would strongly recommend working with the DSAO to anyone looking for a job where they can engage in the sailing community whilst being exposed to and helping an amazing group of members.

Working at DSAO was the most fulfilling and rewarding job I’ve ever had. As a lifelong sailboat racer, it was great to be able to take a more wonderful and challenging approach to teaching sailing and share my love for the sport with others. I gained a completely new appreciation for sailing and made great connections with DSAO members and volunteers alike. I couldn’t have asked for a better summer job!
