April 13th, 2014, Ulysis and Mariana

They had guests from Venzuela, so they decided to treat them for  a day sail on Biscayn Bay. The day started with good breeze. The weatherman promised an increas in wind velociy as the day progreses. He was dead wrong. The wind actually subsided. It still was a beatiful day and they all had a great time, especially young
Camilla, she was catching sea weeds with the help of Margie, who was on board as a crew for the first time.
Camila was so excited to sea little sea life,  tiny crabs and shrimps  hiding in the sea weeds.
Here is what Mariana wrote in the log:

"Amazing trip! Sailing on the RA.  Today's weather was wonderful, Good Captain, Good staff, Mariana"

April 7th, 2014. Annalena & the Swedes

Annalena's Daughter, Elizabet wanted to treat her family who came all the way from Sweden for a wedding to a special treat. She decided to invite them for a sailing trip on Biscayne Bay. There was a concern about the weather. It was really windy, like 30 Knots. Thanks to Ned and a little help from my guests leaving the slip and getting back went without a hitch.
They had a great time. the weather held with good wind all morning. The only hitch was getting the mizzen back in the sail was a bit tricky.
Here is what they wrote in the log:

" Five Swedes and one Englishman came to Coconut Grove for the wedding of Katarina  and Zachary
.
We had a fantastic day on Biscayne Bay. Great sailing Thank you Annalena Bromberg, ,Lincoln Gerlick"

"Thank you for a wonderful tour, Bosse & Anita"

"We are glad to have been at this tour and enjoyed the sailing very much, Thank you, Brigitta and Ron, from Sweden"

March 22nd, 2014, The Turk Family

Steve found me on Travel Zoo. He thought it will be a great gift to his family, especially those who are visiting from Argentina. He thought a sailing afternoon on Biscayn bay will make there visit to Miami a memorable experience.
The weather man was predicting 50% chance of rain. Robert was justifiably
 concerned about the weather. Based on my experience with the weather man I managed to convince Robert to give it a try. As they arrived to the boat it started to sprinkle. I suggested they come aboard and wait below deck and see what the weather does. Almost immediately it cleared and we took off. It was blowing pretty good. I was glad to have Ned and Barbara who came aboard for the first time. they were very helpful getting RA out of the slip with the 25knots wind on the beam.

We had a good sail and they were glad to have come against the weather man's predictions.
Here is what they wrote in the log:

"The weather changed to the best. what a fantastic day on the high seas. A view of Miami I will never forget, Steve Turk"

"Wonderful windy day,wonderful Captain, looking forward to learn more about sailing Barbara Colonna"
