August 16th, 2010, Suzan Cromer Garcia & Family

It took a guest from out of town to motivate Susan to come aboard the RA for a spin on our great Biscayne Bay. So I am glad they decided to show their guest the best Miami has to offer. It was indeed a chamber of commerce day. the wind from the south east at 10 to 15 Knots, calm seas. Sloane, the sailor wanted to go for it, so we raised the Main, the mizzen and he bog Jib. The group wanted to cool off in the crystal clear water of Biscayne bay.
On board was Susan, Sloane, The twins Brysen and Alana, and of course the guest ,Phil Reed of Goode VA. Here is what they wrote in the log:
" Thank you for taking us out today. It was an amazing way to end the summer. I love dolphins, Sloane"
" Thank you so much ! I had so much fun swimming &amd; hanging with my buds! Love Brysen"
"My Dear Captain, What a perfect way to end the summer! Also the greatest way to show our visitor from the mountains of VA the best thing about Miami, Biscayne Bay. The kids loved the RA !, We saw dolphins, swam in crystal clear water and watched a beautiful sunset. Thanks for allowing us to share your love of sailing with you! I highly recommend Captain Asaad & the RA to anyone who wants to experience Miami the way it should be experienced XO Susan"

August 12th, 2010, Marcello& Crisina, Argentina

What a wonderful way to spend all day aboard with such a lovely couple. In spite of the minor language limitations, my Spanish came handy and Cristina's English was also great help. there was really no problem communicating.
The weather could not be better. We set sail abut 11 am, sailed all the way to Elliot key. they got in the water for a refreshing dip there, then we sailed back, all the way to Bay Side, then watched the sun set on the way.
here is what Cristina wrote in the log
" The trip was beautiful and the Captain . Please excuse my English

we enjoyed all, Disfrutamos mucho el paseo, muchas gracias, Thank you, Cristina  y Marcello, Argentina"

August 7th, 2010, Steve Kurylas & Family

The whole family came from allover to celebrate Dr. Steve's engagement to his lovely bride Karen.
The weather was great. The only fly in the soup, well they did not have enough booze. They actually wanted to get back to the dock prematurely, but I did not let that happen. Karen's son has great interest in Egypt and it's history, so Karen and I had a nice chat.
Carolyn is an anesthesiologist, we had something in common being a toxicologist and did some work with couple Anesthesia departments.
Here is what they wrote in the log:
"Thank you for sharing my engagement. You are the best and it was beautiful. Coming down soon to bring my son to meet you. Egyptian thing?, Karen Smith"

"Love the sail ride!, Carolyn Kurylas,

Indeed it was a day that dreams are made of, Just as good as it gets, here is what Maryam wrote in the log:
