Re: Island Sailing Club
I'm a little late on this (apparently I need to browse the forums more), but in my opinion as a member of Island Sailing Club is a great place to learn, and a great alternative to owning your own boat. The core group of guys who run the place are fantastic, as is the instruction group.
I know they were running a Christmas special where ASA 101 was $300, which is a pretty good deal. Not sure the details, but I imagine they might consider it a "winter special" over a Christmas special and give that rate if you take the course in the winter. That's when I took it a couple years back and it was great. Winter sailing here is underrated. If you decide to take the course, see if you can take it when Rhys is teaching it.
