November 23rd, 2011, Shawn & Lindsey Engagement

It was her birthday and he wanted to propose to her on he special day, he also knew she loves to be on the water. So he decided to charter the RA for a sunset cruise on our great Biscayne bay. Mother nature could not have been more cooperative, beautiful gentle breeze and a nice sunset to top the day off. Of course she said yes as all the other proposals performed on the bow of the RA. I am now guaranteeing the outcome of all proposals on y ship.
Here is what they wrote in the log:

"Captain Asaad, Thank you so much for making this perfect day possible for us. I could not have imagined a better setting or captain to share our time with. You were so wonderful! and we could no have asked for a better , or more romantic trip, yours truly, Lindsey DuRant & Shawn Brooks, Engaged 11/23/11"

November 20th, 2011,Cecy V ,Friends & Alina

Cecy'a frinds were here from Chigago. What a fun bunch. On board also was the lone member of the Miami Boating Club, Alina.
It was wendy, few drizzels that did not amount to much.  We sailed to key Biscayne and watched the sun set, which was obstructed by the clouds, but it is always beautiful. Here is what they wrote in the log:

" Captain Asaad, Thank you for a wonderful sail. I enjoyed it very much and hope to join CGSC and see you soon, Take care, Alina Aleman, Coral gables"

" Hey Captain, thanks for a lovely time!! It was fun! Marilyn Santiago"

" Captain, thanks for a wonderful Day. I will be thinking of you in Chicago XO Arabel"

November 6th. 2011, Andrew, Betty & Eli

Andrew's family were visiting Miami from Michigan, and he wanted to treat them to a sailing trip on Biscayne Bay.I also invited Betty Gradera , director of Camcol, and Eli, my class mate in Spanish and his lady Paola.
It was the first time for Paola to be on a sail boat, so I told her as far as sailing you are a virgin.
It was really a very windy day, 25 knots from the North. RA was making over 5 knots with the Mizzen and staysail. They all thought it was great. and indeed it was wonderful sailing conditions. here is what they wrote in the log:
" Captain, Thank you for an amazing sail. My sail cherry has been popped !! quit amazing and memorable,  Thankfully Paola"

"Dear Asaad, It's been a blessing to know you, thank you so much for such a memorable outing. It's been great. Looking forward to a long lasting friendship. Much RA and may God Bless you always !, Betty Gradera, CAMACOL"

Captain Asaad, Special thanks for your friendship! I had a wonderful time and I look forward to many more! Take care and many great sails, Juan Sanchez, El Paso Texas"
