March 12th, 2018, Corporate Race

They came from all over the country to enjoy a regatta on Biscayne Bay. My guests were from Baltimore and Boston. They were great sports, the weather did not bother them. It was indeed a heavy day on the bay. We started with part of the main, the mizzen and the staysail. the first leg was a close hauled. Ra was doin 4 knots or so. had to do couple tacks. O

n the way back the wind was behind us, so we raised the big jib and we really went hull speed almost 6 to 7 knots.. here is what they wrote in the log:

"I said today with my wife Kim and friends John and Nancy. It was windy raining but we had a great time. Thanks for a good time, Bill Butz

February 24th,2018, Diliana's Birth day

This was Isis's birthday's present to her special friend Diliana.
Diliana came aboard with friends to celebrate the day. Titus was aboard to help make the day special. Unfortunately my sweet Isis who organized the event could not be with us. I promised Isis and Diliana that we will have them both aboard soon,
It was a windy day, we raised the mizzen and the stay sail. I  had Diliana on the helm for a while, she really seems like a natural on the helm.
Camillle and her husband and her 18 month old daughter  Iris were aboard. Iris seems to have had a great time.
Christina and Titus had so much in common sharing memories of their days at the Mast Academy.

Here is what they wrote in the ship's log:

"Today is Diliana's Birthday!, No dolphins but beautiful people and an amazing experience, Chris"

"Today is my birthday and what an wonderful day it was, sailing into the sunset with Miami at a distance. Thank you captain Asaad Masoud, Isis and Titus for the most wonderful birthday one can wish for, D


"My husband, 1.5 year old daughter and I sailed with this amazing crew to celebrate Diliana's birthday. The experience was relaxing ,authentic and memorable.Thank you for the sail into the sunset. My daughter  loved climbing allover dansing and staring into the ocean waves as much as we did, Camille "

February 18th, 2018, Stefania and Jason

Stefania wanted to surprise her husband Jason on his birth day by taking him sailing on Biscayn bay. He never been sailing before and she thought that will be a relaxing experience for a hard working anesthesiologist.
She found me on get my boat .com.
It was just a wonderful day for a first time sailors. I also had Rana , and Mithun on board to help sail the boat. We had everything up, and Ra was making almost hull speed. I was concerned if the guests were scared because of the speed and the heeling of RA, but they assured me that they were indeed enjoying the experience. Here is what Stefania wrote in the log:

"My husband and I had the perfect sailing experience. This was our first time on a sail boat and we couldn't ask for a better day. Wind, breeze a

nd clear water. We also saw a dolphin. We will come back. Thank you captain and crew'
