November 30th 2014 Chris&Sandy Parmeter

Charter was from 2-6 so we could catch the beautiful sunset on Biscayne Bay. For Crew we had Titus, Mario, Josh, Asaad was in Costa Rica so he could not make it. The sun was shining and the winds were crisp blowing at 25 Knots. We ran on the Mizzen and Stay sail till the winds calmed and we raised the big jib, things were good until  the wind picked up and the RA started flying we clocked speeds of 6.8 Knots, which is very close to hull speed. At this point we decided to drop the big jib and return to running the stay sail and the mizzen. Here is what the guests wrote in the ships log:

" Wife pawned this off on me. After Thanksgiving sunset cruise. Josh,Titus and captain Mario took great care of the six of us.Weather was perfect with just the right mix of wind. Caught some good swells and really had a smooth ride. Capped the trip off with a beautiful sunset.
                                                                                                Thanks,
                                                                                             Chris, Sandy, Jeff, Bob, Carol, Sally"

september 20th, 2014, Edmon & friends

They were friends since their days in college, now they are high powered executives in different parts of the country. They chose our magic city as a place to see each other and enjoy what Miami has to offer. Edmon arranged for a day sail on Biscayne bay. They timed it just right. We had two hours in the morning of fair weather, then the weather turned foul.
It was their karma.
Here is what Edmon





wrote in the log:

"Had a great day with a great crew! Such awesome weather and beautiful views. we will be back soon, Edmon and friends"
