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'

Terri and her family were here from Wisconsin to visit their Daughter who's is a student at the University of Miami. They stayed at my studio at the Sonesta. They wanted to experience a short sail on Biscayne bay. This was my second trip for today, was not sure if Ned was going to be able to handle two trips in one day so I invited Suzy who was happy to come all the way from Homestead to join us. The weather was great, every body had great time.
here is what Terri wrote in the log:

February 2nd. 2018, Abey Chab and Family

They were here from Great Britain, Morocco and Miami to experience a day on the great waters of Biscayne bay aboard the ship RA
It was really a very nice calm day, the sun peeked out and in, they seemed not to mind the slow sailing. The consolation prize was the dolphins were all over the bay, and they really enjoy watching them play. We also had a very beautiful sun set.
Here in their own words:

"We had a great time cruising on Biscayne Bay. The weather was perfect as well as the company we were with. We enjoyed food  and drink especially the spinach pies, hummus and falafel.
We were excited to see a pod of dolphins swimming on the bay! The best pictures of Miami sunset, unforgettable, the Chab family"

January 1st, 2018, Isis & Titus anniversary

I did not know it was a special day for my daughter. They just asked me to start the new year on the water. They were lucky, it was a beautiful day before the cold weather hit us on the next day. I also invited Madeleine and Michael Kelly to join us. I wanted Titus to meet Madeleine ,  to share her experience getting her Captains license  with him.

Here is what they wrote in the log:

"Today was a special day of celebration for many reasons: Falcon's first new year and his first time at the bow of the RA, also a day for celeberating

my 11th anniversary with the love of my life Titus. And last but not least ,  a day to celebrate time with my father. He says every day you spend on the water doesn't count against your life , so we are all still 25 years old, ISIS."

"Thank you for a wonderful sail. Weather and conditions were excellent, sailing with the wind was smooth and quiet, Michael"

"Like always we had a wonderful time on RA, calm waters, beautiful sails, magnificent skies, fantastic start to the new year 2018!, Madeleine
