September 16 th, 2010, Chantal Gloor & Family

It was Anthony Gagliano's Birthday, It has also been a year since his Passing. Lana Callen Gagliano, Chantal's mother and the widow of Tony wanted to do something special for her beloved Tony on his birthday and to set him free on the beautiful Biscayne bay, the waters he loved and he wrote about in his Novel," Straits of Fortune".
It was indeed a gorgeous day. In the beginning there was some threatening clouds, and the possibility of active weather, but the clouds all subsided and we could not have asked for better sailing conditions for Tony and his family
Here is what Chantal wrote in the ship's log:
"Captain Asaad: We had a wonderful ride on the RA, this was a spectacular adventure for all of us! We were able to say our good by's to our beloved Tony Gagliano. Thank you for letting us experience this once in a life time endeavor, from all of us on board, Chantal Gloor, Lana Callen Gagliano ,Claire Callen, Tina Callen Samantha Callen, Iris Chase, Barry Chase and Dan wakefield, Thank you"

September 5th. 2010, Capt. Bryan Berc' Dad B. Day

Capt. Bryan could not think of anything better to celebrate his father's 80th birthday than to take him ssailing on our Miami's beautiful Biscayn Bay. The family came from across the cuntry for the occasion. We sailed with very little wind, then they decided to go swimming by Nixon's harbour. We dropped the anchor and every body went in the water except Uncle Hal. here is what Bryan wrote in the log:

Wonderful sunset cruise, swimming with the family and friends. Thank you Asaad Bryan"

September 3rd, 2010, Tony Diresta @ laura

Anthony and his friend Terrence came all the way from Washington DC. and West Palm Beach to enjoy a day sailing on Miami's great Biscayne bay. We also had on board as a guest and fisrt Mate Laura Talagas, who was here on a short lay over to her destination in St Kits. She was a wonderful addition to the captain and the guests. we did have great weather in spite of threatening storms on land. I managed to dodge the storms to the amazement of my guests.
