  • AMC Fire island Cabin



From Bayshore to Dunewood:  11:10 and 2 pm

Return from Atlantique to Bayshore: 3:40, 4:10 or 6 pm

Come out and join us for a beautiful Sunday afternoon at the beach to dedicate our New Flying Scot sail boat in honor of the late Nyla Pavlish.  

Nyla was a beloved Fire Island Sailing Instructor for 10 years at the cabin.  She loved to sail and was a great supporter of our sailing program.  Nyla bequeathed a donation to AMC, Fire Island Committee toward the purchase of the new boat.  Her Brother Neal and sister-in-law     Carolyn made an additional donation.  We will have a dedication ceremony at 3 pm to name our boat in her honor.

Pack a lunch, come out for the day and enjoy the beach.  Those who are authorized are welcome to sail the Sunfish.  The Instructors and students will be arriving for the start of the Mid-week Sail School, so we should have a nice group.

Please RSVP here on the site.  No other arrangements are required to attend.  If you will be using the cabin facilities for the day, a cabin day guest fee will apply.

The ferry schedule will be posted here as soon as it is released for september

    Very moving for me to dedicate "Nyla's Boat". A tribute that will keep alive the presence and spirit of my lost friend. A great group showed up for a day on the beach and on the water. This was the kind of day that Nyla would have loved. It was a fabulous event on a gorgeous, sunny cool day.

    Last I heard, there was still one space open on the Sail & Qi-gong weekend Fri-Sun 13-15. Yes, that starts today.
    You could come earlier and participate in the sloop sailing on Sat and Sunday. Check with Anita.

    It is so wonderful that the Sailing Alliance is honoring Nyla in this way. Now she will be able to sail forever!!!!!! Doubt I can make it out this Sunday, but if plans change will sure try.

    I am sending this RSVP to attend---even though I did not know Nyla--I feel like I did after reading about her dedication to this sailing program and her love of sailing and people. I will be there for the School and plan to arrive early to be part of this celebration of Nyla's life. Thank you for letting me be a part of this.
