    Wonderful managers and amazing students. We even had some jibing today! Weekends like this is what keeps me coming back every year as a volunteer sail instructor.

      Bob, make sure you follow the instructions for actually getting into the events, an RSVP here means very little (in fact, it should be your last step in the process). The instructions for registering are listed in the details of each of the events, for the Learn To Sail (mid-week and weekends) they are: "CONTACT: [masked]. Then RSVP here on the site. YOU ARE NOT CONFIRMED UNLESS YOU ARE RESERVED AND PAID WITH THE CABIN CONTACT ABOVE!"

      Bob, if you are not reserved with the cabin for this event can you change your RSVP to no? Many thanks.

    No room at the Inn (AMC Cabin) !
    I emailed to request 2 beds earlier in the week and was given the bad news. According to the Meetup there are 8 participant slots available for the 6/6 weekend, can that be so if there are no beds available. Is there anything that can be done about this? Is there camping anywhere nearby? At the very least people who sign up should be told there are no longer beds available at the AMC cabin for the weekend of 6/6-8

      Hi Stephanie, the course is advertised elsewhere, hence we take bookings from various sources. Once the course is full we do try to mark it as such here on Meetup.com, but it's not an automatic procedure, so sometimes it takes a day or two.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
