April,19th, 2015, Ray Rasmussen

Ray and his lovely wife Colleen were in Miami for a conference. He decided to have some quality time with his wife, so he chartered RA to have an afternoon sail on Biscayne bay. It was a windy day, but that did not dampen their enthusiasm. They stayed




on the forward deck most of the time soaking the sun which they don't see much of in their home town Seattle. Here is what Ray wrote in the log:

"Windy,Captain Asaad and first mate Ned made the occasion fun and relaxing, Best ride in Miami, Ray and colleen Rasmussen"

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:

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"

April 10th, 2015,Isis's pre Birth day sail,

Isis and Titus were in town, it was also a few days before Isis's birthday. We were planning on a sunset cruise, instead, we had an amazing combination of a sunset cruise and a night sail. And what a sunset and what a lovely night. Titus had a great time running the ship most of the trip. He even navigated the ship under sail in the channel at night. He is a good potential Captain. Roger, Isis's friend and coworker was aboard for the ride. Here is what he wrote in the log;

"Dear Captain, The beautifully colored sky and transition to night was supreme this warm April evening. Such a joy to meet Isis's father who she always speaks so lovingly about. I have gotten the chance to meet many of your children and they  are rich hearts and unique. C


learly benefiting from your influence. Thank you for sharing this experience with me and look forward to seeing you in the future.
Thank you for the beautiful evening , Roger Ingraham"
