May 22nd, 2015, Eric Dubois & Deirdre Nero

Eric and Deirdre have new lawyers in their offices and wanted to introduce them to the best of Miami. The wether was unsettled, so ned and I decided to play a conservative sail plan. and that was a very good decision. We had a pot pore of wind, all the spectrum from doldrum to 30 knots. We got lucky though, nobody got wet. Here is what they wrote in the log:

" Captain Asaad, thank you so much for a lovely afternoon sailing on RA. We appreciate the opportunity to take our staff out for a fun trip bonding on Biscayne Bay! We look forward to next time, Love Dierdre Nero and aid Gros Bubois"

"Thank you Captain Asaad and Ned for the terrific sailing day! It is a great way to kick off memorial day weekend, Nancy"

" Thank you so much, John"

"Captain Asaad, this was my first time sailing and it was amazing. I really liked it. for sure I will come back. Thank you so much, Edward from Nicaragua"

"Thank you for the lovely semi adventure, Captain Asaad. You are a nice host. I hope to sail with you again. Hpercilia, from Venzuela"

"Hello, Thank you for everything. I really appreciate it, hopefully we will get together again, Nick Torres, fro China"

April,26th, 2015, Jeanette Perez and friends

They were supposed to go sailing the 25th of April, but the weather was no cooperation, so they decided to reschedule for the 26th. I just picked up Titus from the airport, he was ready for a sunset sail with a bunch of pretty ladies. aboard also was ned. It was very windy. so I needed both of them to help run the ship. In the process of disembarking, poor Titus lost his $200.00  glases.
They all came all the way from Atlanta to Celebrate a birth day  sailing on Biscayne Bay.

April, 18th, 2015, Afternoon, Danielle and friends

Danielle invited her friends that she grew up with, and have not seen each other for a long time to come to Miami for a special reunion. She could not think of anything better than going for an afternoon sail on Biscayne Bay. it was a beautiful afternoon, brisk wind and plenty of sun. the ladies congregated on the forward deck to soak in the Florida sun and catch up with each other, with some champagne and food.   They were impressed by the fleet of Star boats racing. Here is what Danielle wrote in the log:

"We had such a wonderful time ! Enjoyed a beautiful day with great friends. We will definitely

be back, Thank You!!, Danielle, Kathleen, Heather and Renee"

April,18th, 2015, Michael Harvey

Dr. Micheal Harvey was in town for a clinical Pathology conference. He is a true athlete and and an avid sailor. He knew that Sailing on Biscayne bay will be a very special escape for him from the long hours of meetings in the conference rooms. He even walked from the hotel, and enjoyed visiting the Vizcaya gardens on his way to the Marina. It was a very nice day for sailing. on the way out we had the main, mizzen and stay sail. Mike wanted to get the Big jib up, so we raised it on our way back. He skippered the boat much of the time even in the channel under sail. He really did a great job in a busy channel. Here is what Mike wrote in the log:

"I had a blast sailing with Captain Asaad and Ned. Highlight of my trip to Miami! I will definitely return, Michael Harvey"
