The weather started with unsettled conditions, a little rain, a good size square, but then it all cleared and we had a great sail. Mike's lady at that time said, I could not have asked for a better day" in spite the rain we experienced. Here is what Mike wrote in the log:

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"

March 26th, 2015, Julie Uygur and Family

Julie really wanted to go sailing and get her sea legs again. She lived on a sail boat in her earlier years in Monte Carlo when she was an Opera singer. She really wanted her children to experience the exhilaration and the pleasure of sailing. She could not have picked a better day. It was very windy. I had to put them to work helping me get out of the slip. After that it was great sailing. We even enjoyed a beautiful sunset. Here is what Julie wrote in the log:

"Asaad and Ned: thank you for an incredible sail! It was  a wonderful experience for the family and I enjoyed feeling my sea-legs again. Very smooth sail and great knowledge about the area. W

e will be back as soon as possible! many best wishes, Julie and family"
