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"

September 10th, 2014, The Mars event

The Mars corporation executives were here from all over the world for a conference. Part of their activities was to enjoy a day sailing on Biscayne Bay. We arranged for 4 boats to accommodate the group. The weather was unsettled, first wind, then a bit of gentle drizzle which did not spoil the outing. then almost total calm. It was a potpourri of weather connotations. The group enjoyed it all.

It is always a pleasure to have Ami and his friends aboard. He is a great sailor and a great host, and his friends are all very special. Today particularly we had another fellow sailor,, Karl Fitzgerald and his family, also on board for the first time was Gaby , Sarah and Chris.
It was beautiful on the water, the wind wa


s 15-120 knots. We first raised the mizzen and staysail. On the way back we eased also the big Jib. Ra really took of, and that is when Ami decided to get dragged. He is such an adventurous person. I was concerned. but he did it.
