January 14th, 2012, Jon, Engagement

Jon wanted to propose to his lady on the bow of the RA sailing on Miami's Biscayne Bay. I invited my very special friend Dr Eva Ritvo to come aboard to cheer for the couple and document the event. Eva was having great time taking pictures of the couple. It was wonderful to see such happy couple starting a new phase of life aboard.
Here is what they wrote in the log"

"Today captain Asaad took my girl friend and I on a sunset sail out on Miami's Biscayne Bay. I planned on proposing as soon as the sun sets. I was able to hold out for one hour, but the wind had caught the jib , the waves made a perfect fluttering sound and two dolphins swam next to the boat. I knew that was the right time, so I asked Farrah to marry me. Lucky for me, she said YES ! . Thank you Captain Asaad for a perfect day and helping to share my love to sailing with my new love of my life, Jon Thompson"

" Asaad ,Thank you for such a wonderful day. I am so happy you could be part of such a special day. Thank You and I wish you many Blessings, Farrah"

"Asaad, We always enjoy sailing with you  but today was  so special ! What a treat to be part of Jon and Farrah engagement! and the sunset was stunning, Many Thanks, Eva and Marissa"

January 14th, 2012, Max & Emily

He came from Montreal Canada and she came from Colorado to enjoy Miami's warm weather. Well they picked a cold front.  They were really good sports and did not allow what  we Floridians call cold weather dampen their enthusiasm for a sunrise Cruise. It was windy. I knew Max was a seasoned sailor, so I had the main, mizzen and stay sail up, with up to 30 knots of wind It was more that what was comfortable for Emily. so we dropped the main and still had a good steady 5 knots of speed.
Here is what they wrote in the log:
"Dear Captain Asaad: Thank you so much for the conversation, sailing tips and your wonderful outlook on life. I have no doubt you will find the perfect sailing lady match soon. All the best, Emily."

" Great sail, you are a special captain, thank you for initiating Emily. It is an experience we both will never forget. memories shared , never forget Alex Paulhus. Looking forward to crew on your boat when I will have a house in Miami"
