Gladys contacted me to fulfill her husband's last wish. The day started with heavy rain, which ultimately gave way to a very still cloudy cool morning. The mood of the weather was very fit for the mood and purpose of the trip. Gladys's son Rick and his wife Lyne and their three beautiful triplet children Stephanie,Danielle and Rikito came to wish Pedro a final good by:

The Family of Pedro T. Nuszkowski layed his remains to rest- fulfilling his wishes. May he rest in peace and reside with God. I know you are happy my good abuelo. Rick

Back to the dock after a lovely night sail Posted by Hello

It was a spur of the moment invitation when Felipe told me it was Racheli's birthday. I told him let us go sailing, the moon was full and the wind was up straight from the west, so we hoisted the main alone and sailed due south.

31st Birthday of Rachei Vidal
Wind speed 20 Knots
My husband surprised me with an evening cruise. It was my first time on a sail boat and quite calm and enjoyable. We observed a beautiful orange moon and a satellite orbiting above us. I got to steer the boat which was a lot like driving a semi truck from the back. Asaad is a great captain and taught me a lot about the boat and it's instruments. He is a great Captain and a true gentleman.

Back to the dock, tired but happy Posted by Hello

Gregory Soucy wanted to share with his family and friends a day on the bay. It was indeed a beautiful day. Gentle breeze and sunny. We sailed south for several hours. On the way back the crew wanted to cool off. So we dropped the sails and let them take a dip. A good time was had by all

Upon arrival, happy group Posted by Hello

Patricia Hopkins gets together with her class mates and life friends every two years. This year they decided to meet in Miami. It was my lucky day to have these lovely ladies share their special day with me. It was windy and partly cloudy. We sailed with the main and staysail. They were catching up with their life stories. What a way to have a reunion.

The ladies on the bow Posted by Hello

Let us call it the grengo crowd. As they put it I saved the best to last.
They really had a ball. They brought good food, good music and good cheer. It was a celebration for 4 birthdays. The weather was great, the breeze was up, the wind was steady at 20 Knots. So I opted to raise the main only to provide a comfortable ride. Here is what Ellen wrote
Celebrating 4 birthdays with great friends, good laughs, good food and good times. Thanks for the fantastic outing. Ellen Kula
