My good friend Marcel brought his beautiful bride Renata and several of his friends from the Lank Mark group.

Kevin and Bryce on the bow Sprit Posted by Hello

A lovely couple who found me on the internet.They came all the way from Pompano to sail with me. This was a birthday present from Bryce to Kevin. His 34th birthday. He had no idea where he was going. We left about 4 pm, sailed by Key Biscayne and Stiltsville. There was alot of activity at Stiltville. Dick's house had a party, and few others had some activities. One house had a brand new blue paint job and that was good to see. The wind was up and down, varied from 22K to only 5, but for the most part it was a breezy day. A great day to teach Kevin how to sail. He really did a great job. By the end of the day he was steering RA like a natural. They hope to make sailing part of their life. We came back to the dock shortly after 10 pm. What a great sail! I wish them all the best.

Kevin and Bryce

A lovely couple from New York, he is a dairy farmer, and she is a Cardiac Nurse. New wonderful relationship. Looking to start a new exciting life that includes sailing in the beautiful waters of the Caribbean. He wanted to learn how to sail, so I tried to give them a sailing lesson aboard the RA. It was a beautiful fall cool day with brisk 10-15 Knots of wind.
