April 26th, 2017, Claudia Martinez

It was Claudia's boy friend's birth day. Frank knew about me and my boat and that is what he wanted to do to celebrate his birthday.  She made the arrangements. she even ordered great weather conditions. We had 10-15 knots of wind. We raised the main, the mizzen and the small Jib. It was a great day to celebrate a birth day.

Here is what Claudia wrote to me after the trip:

" Thank you so much Captain Asaad! we had a lovely time. Everything I imagined times 10.
We will be joining you with more friends soon, Claudia"

Here is what Frank wrote in the log:

"Thank you Captain for a beautiful sunset tour. Couldn't have been more perfect, see you soon, Frank and Claudia"

March 19th, 2017, Danelle and family

Danelle was in Miami for important business. She was giving presentations in meetings. she wanted to have a special treat for her young family. Since she was leaving in the morning she decided to have a night sail on RA on Biscayne bay. It was really an ideal night. was calm in the begging of the trip, on the way back the wind picked up. Over all it was a pleasant experience. I believe they all enjoyed it. Here is what Danelle



wrote in the log:

"This was a perfect evening , a midnight sail with the people who mean the most to me. Beautiful sky filled with stars, perfect still water and an amazing crew! Thank you for the wonderful experience!

March 15th, 2017, Kurt's Wedding

It was such a pleasure and honor for  my friend Kurt to decide to have his wedding ceremony performed aboard my humble Ship RA on Biscayn Bay. He and his beautiful bride officiated the exchange of the vows  in the cook pit and was officiated by their friend the notary  Brian. Present were his parents from New York and her Mother for Colombia.
It was a vey windy day. I was lucky to have my future son in law, Titus to help me run the ship. We started with the main mizzen and small jib, but ultimately dropped the mizzen and reefed the main due to the heavy weather. It was a great sailing experience for for a great occasion. Here is what they wrote in the log:

"Thank you Asaad and crew of the RA for allowing us to spend this incredible and meaningful day on your vessel. I will forever cherish this memory of my marrying my beautiful wife and starting off our life together with so much happiness and beauty. Kurt"

" And in  the sweetness of your matrimony let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
For in the dew of little things the heart finds it's morning and is refreshed KG Brian"

"Thank you Asaad for a wonderful experience to share our son's wedding aboard your boat, Mari & Steve"

"Thank you for the wonderful trip   and the experience of sailing and the officiation of Kurt and Adriana's wedding, Thanks again, Steve Birchenough, Kurt's Dad"

March 12th, 2016, Isis and Billy

The second attempt to take Billy and his wife sailing. Last Sunday was too windy, so this Sunday was much better. A variety of interesting weather conditions. From heavy wind, to total calm. Definitely not boring. Further more we saw not one but two rain bows and watched the rain pour on the city and not one drop on us. Managed to sail all the time and bring her all the way home under sail.
Here is what Billy wrote in the log:

















"Thank you so much for a gorgeous day ending with a rainbow !  Such a lovely time time with our favorite Captain, Love, Billy and Meghan"
