October 14th, 2012, Lina betancourt

I t was a very windy day. I managed to convince Lina that it will be an exhilarating safe sailing experience. I was lucky to have Cory, my personal trainer and his friend Deyar come aboard to help sail the ship. I raised only the mizzen and the stay sail. RA was stable and sailing like a champ. Good times was had by all. Lina's only complaints that the trip went by so fast. So Next time we should stay longer on the water. H
ere is what Lina wrote in the log: "Captain Asaad, Thanks for a fantastic sailing morning. Time with you fly !! from los Amigos Colombianos, Angila,Lina 2, Luis 2 and David"
