Pat, a new experience. He really did a good Job Posted by Hello

Three gentlemen and a Lady, editors of Money Magazine, here for a conference. They chose to go sailing instead of golf, or shopping. Good choice. The bay was absolutely gorgeous. The wind was 10 to 15 Knots.

Here is what each of them wrote in the log:

Fabulous sail today. Captain Asaad is the best

Professor Dr. Thor Bruce, of the Universiy of Miami, brought his brother Robert and friend Jim Heslop to enjoy a day aboard the RA on Biscayne Bay.
It was just a lovely morning, with gentle breeze. We sailed across the bay and sailed back in the channel.

The group having fun Posted by Hello


Here they are more serious Posted by Hello

A fun group from England, found me on the welcome guide, and decided to go sailing.
It was a very calm day. We did some sailing windward , but on the way back the wind completely died. They were here to chill any way. They did enjoy themselves.
Here is what Dr. Bhuva Wrote:

Asaad, thank you for a memorable experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our nautical experience! The sail was wonderful, calm waters, and a great sunset was enjoyed on the way home. Thanks for your nautical information, and I hope your experience with a Brazilian is not too far off ! ha ha

We look forward to visiting your website and looking forward to seeing our snaps.
Regards and safe sailing for the future:

Drs. Surinder, Anand, Bhavin, Shrik, Raj and Hitesh

The Captain and the guests, after a hard day at sea Posted by Hello


The First Mate and the Guests Posted by Hello

Liz and her son Tony were here from the twin cities in Minnesota. She knew that Biscayne Bay was the place for sailing. She invited her nephew and his lady to come for the experience. It was a cold cloudy windy morning, but that did not dampen their enthusiasm for sailing.

It actually was a great sail. Only Gianfranco and me were cold. The guests did not think it was cold. Tony was on the helm most of the trip. He really did a great job steering the boat. I still can not believe that he was not cold in his shorts and short sleeve shirt.

Here is what Jon wrote:

Wonderful trip. We sailed through a sailing Regatta, and Lively discussion of the state of the world. We even had a little sun towards the end. We know that Tony has a career in sailing. Our most important lesson learned is that sailing , like life is more about the journey than the destination,

Thanks
Liz, Tony Berne, Laura Shives and Jon Mundorf

Greg and Mac upon arrival after a hard day at sea Posted by Hello

Greg and Mack braved the blustery windy cold January day and decided to make the best out of it and go sailing. They were not one bit disappointed. RA performed superbly as she always does with heavy weather. She exceeded hull speed, under the Main and the staysail only. The wind was steady 25 with gusts up to 30 knots. Our speed was steady 6-7 Knots and peaked to 7.8 with the heavy gusts. Both young men had a great time. Here is what they wrote:

Fantastic trip, went out for a few hours to practice up our sailing, great boat, better captain, even better time. Can not wait to come back for a longer trip. Sorry about the furling line

Best,

Mac King and Greg Poeter
