December 30th, 2016, Alex Rosman & Family

Alex wanted to celebrate his wife's birth day. He decided to take her sailing on Biscayne bay and invite friends and family. It was the first cold day of the season, however, the wind was brisk and they all had a good time. I had Johnny on board to help run the ship. Here is what Alex wrote in the log:

"Thank you so much for the most wonderful day ! We had a truly amazing time!, Best Regards, Monica, Alex, Ivan ,

Andrea and Robert"

December 3rd. 2016, Dr. Chad Curry and friends

They came all the way from Nebraska for some warm weather and relaxation. They decided to go on a cruise on Biscayne Bay aboard the RA.  Alex the Concierge at The Ritz called me and scheduled an outing . It was  a spur of the moment . The weather was great  for sailing . It was windy, 15-20 knots. Went on minimum sails to keep them comfortable. Aboard was Laura and Johnny as crew.
Here is what they wrote in the log:

" Thank you for a very enjoyable and relaxing afternoon of sailing. Excellent Captain and crew. So cool that Asaad has an experience living in Omaha, our home! Cheers! Eric and Lisa Hodges"

"We had such a great day today. This was truly an amazing experience. Perfect end to our trip. Thank you so much, Chad and Suzanne Curry"

November 28th, 2016, Roselyn,Frank & Felix

Roselyn wanted to share the Magic of sailing and the calming effect of being on the water on a sailing vessel on the great Biscayn bay with the business community which is always on the go and under stress. She partnered with Felix, who is an attorney and Frank the photographer to get the project started. Today was indeed an ideal day for it. The wind was up, 20-25, knots . We raised the Mizzen nd the stay sail. RA was very comfortable doing 4-5 knots. Frank was  taking a lot of shots, I also took some pictures. Here is what they wrote in the log:

" Dearest Captain Asaad, Arturo and RA, there are no words to express the beauty and blessings of this trip as we start our journey together with Felix, Frank and Wilson( who unfortunately could not be with us today). We were blessed by the energy of the pyramids, the the spiritual care of  Ireland, the Celts Archangel, the strong beautiful wind, sun ,visiting dolphins and a rainbow and of course the energy of you and the amazing RA. Thank you and blessings as we go forward together , offering the calm , centering elevating energy of our work together. Love and light, Roselyn ( Doc Rhaz)"

"Dear Captain Asaad & Arturo, I cannot explain my appreciation for this Monday sailing trip. It was amazing. I came aboard with no expectations and my experience was perfect especially being my first sailing experience. The wind was heavy on the way out and later guided us into the marina. Thank you both. I look very much forward to working with , you and RA to make the vision of our company come true.

Stay well, stay well The lawyer Felix Ojeda"

"Dear Captain ,  Thank you so much for your conversation, expertise and wonderful peaceful Company. I have a new friend. Frank Pichado"
