August 9th, 2008, Anita & Hallvard of Norway

They came all the way from Norway to experience sailing on our beautiful Miami's Biscayne Bay.The wind was up. steady 18-20 Knots. we sailed with the main, Mizzen and staysail. During the trip we had a squale that packed over 30 knots, so we dropped the stay and the mizzen. On the way back we raised them again. Hal is a great sailor, and he helped manage the boat. he actually enjoyed the little storm and admired how the boat was so stable during that blow. Here is what Anita wrote: Thank you for making my 40th birthday celebration a very pleasant day on the bay leaving the rain in the city,
Regards, Anita and Hallvard de Bruyn, and family
