June 23rd, 2012, Brittany Black

The weatherman was predicting 60% chance of showers and thunderstorms, but Brittany wanted to go for it any way. Of course I obliged. We actually had a very nice sail most of the trip. In fact I had both jibs up and the mizzen on the way home. They were anxious to get home fast. Right at the entrance of the channel We got the wind and the rain to the tune of heavy rain with 30-40 knots of wind. It took Joseph and couple of the ladies to furl the jib. we had some anxious moments in the Chanel while furling the jib. they all went to the security of the cabin below deck, Joseph and I navigated RA safely thru the Chanel . he was priceless bringing me my foul weather gear and helping me spot the marker which were almost invisible due to the storm. Thanks to Joseph, RA ,the Brittany, the engine and of course thank God for letting me survive the the angry sea one more time. I believe my guests got a thrill out of the adventure. here is what Brittany wrote in the log: "Captain, What an extraordinary adventure ! Thank you for a day filled with peaceful grey skies, soft lulling winds and a sailing challenge as you deftly and masterly handled the rain storm that swept in at the end. you made sure we were all safe and well cared for, thank you. It was a wonderful trip that I am happy to remember for ever. All the best, Brittany Black. Thank you so much Brittany for the Kind words, and by the way Happy birthday. I believe this birth day will be remembered for a long time. I hope you come sail with me again soon. you are a very kind and pleasant soul and it will be a pleasure to have you aboard again. I hope you like the pictures.

June 2nd, 2012, Robert Meck & Family

It was Jeanie, Birthday, Robert's Wife and Lisa's Mother. It was actually Lisa who engineered this outing for her Mom's Big day. Dan, Jeanie's Son came all the way fro Athens Greece for his Mother's Birth day. The only locals were Lisa and her boy friend who live on the beach. Lisa thought that a sail on RA on Miami's Biscayne bay will be the best way to celebrate her Mom's Birthday. We were initially worried about the weather, but we disregarded the advice of the weatherman, and the weather was just great, 10-15 knots steady from the south. W
e had a great sail. here is what they wrote in the log: "I had a most enjoyable cruise with family around the bay. The captain and crew were professional and most enjoyable. Best birthday ever!, Jeanie Meck and family" " Thank you so much ! it was the best way to spend our evening on such a gorgeous day! "Beejee"
