September 10th, 2014, The Mars event

The Mars corporation executives were here from all over the world for a conference. Part of their activities was to enjoy a day sailing on Biscayne Bay. We arranged for 4 boats to accommodate the group. The weather was unsettled, first wind, then a bit of gentle drizzle which did not spoil the outing. then almost total calm. It was a potpourri of weather connotations. The group enjoyed it all.
Here is what they wrote in the ship's log:

"Thank you so much for the wonderful experience. The crew was great to speak with and the vessel made for for a great afternoon!, Arturo"

"So peaceful and quiet! Thanks, Colleen"

"Great Fun! enjoyed the ride, Yosef"

" Thanks for everything, Great trip, S
eth"

"A very great and memorable trip, Thanks for the Captain and the crew, Dave"

August 31st, 2014, Ami &Friends

It is always a pleasure to have Ami and his friends aboard. He is a great sailor and a great host, and his friends are all very special. Today particularly we had another fellow sailor,, Karl Fitzgerald and his family, also on board for the first time was Gaby , Sarah and Chris.
It was beautiful on the water, the wind wa


s 15-120 knots. We first raised the mizzen and staysail. On the way back we eased also the big Jib. Ra really took of, and that is when Ami decided to get dragged. He is such an adventurous person. I was concerned. but he did it.

"Asaad, thank you for the amazing sail boat ride. the story of your life you shared reminded me of a poem from pablo Nieirda called , " Viejo lobo de mar' Thank you for a lovely time  Gaby Tolles"

Some of them came fro Ecuador, many of them were at the end of  world tour in the middle east. They could not miss a few hours sailing on our great Biscayne bay before they go shopping.

Captain Asaad took Isis, Anisa, Josh & Titus on a relaxing sunset sail, we had a gentle 10 Knots breeze so we were quickly under sail once we got out of the channel.
