April 7th, 2012, Sergio Sardinas

It was Lina's Birthday, Sergio's lovely wife. So he invited friends to come celebrate the day sailing The Ra on our beautiful Biscayne Bay. It was a windy day. I started with the big jib and the Mizzen. Needed to take the big jib down and

raise the stay sail due to heavy weather. It was steady 25 knots gusting to 30. the guests had a great time. the heavy weather made the ride more exhilarating. of course RA does very well with such weather conditions.
here is what they wrote in the log:

" Captain Asaad, The best trip ever. Thanks for giving us the safest, funniest ride ever, Andres"

" My best birthday, Thanks captain, Lina's 30th"

" dear Captain, This was my first time sailing and I had a blast !! The stormy weather made it an adventurous ride, Thank you ! Michell Pascuel"
