July 10th, 2010, Miami beach Chamber

The purpose of this cruise was to familiarize the Staff and management of Miami Beach Chamber of commerce with sailing on Miami's Biscayne bay. The luck was on our side and we had indeed a chamber of commerce weather. We could not have ordered better weather for sailing, Wind from the east at 10 - 15 knots. We raised the main, Mizzen and the forward jib. RA loved it and was going hull speed much of the time. On board were Chantal Gloor, Kathleen Harris Hicks, Valerie Rasken and the CEO of the Chamber the great Ceci Velasco.
Here is what they wrote in the ship's Log:

"Dear Captain Asaad, Thank you for the wonderful sailing trip, It was a great way to kickoff my birthday celebration. I look forward to coming back on the RA, merci!!, P.S thank you for all your help Marti, Your hummus was delicious Chantal Gloor."
"Captain Asaad and Marty, Thank you for a glorious day out on the bay. Your expertise was in evidence today as we enjoyed a peaceful worry free afternoon out on the water. We look forward to promoting your business so that many more people , and Chamber members especially can enjoy the same, Thank you, Kathleen and Valerie"
