December 23rd, 2012, Gayle Baenbridge & Family

It was the day before Christmas eve. It also was the coldest morning of the year and that did not sway Gayle from going out for an early morning sail on Biscayne Bay. It was indeed a very pleasant morning. The cold did not penetrate into our bodies too much because the wind was very gentle. In fact there was very little wind. I had Michael aboard, and we raised the main, Mizzen and big jib. we actually had a nice sail out when we were close hauled. However on the way back, when the wind was behind us, it was a very slow ride. . Every body enjoyed the trip. Here is what they wrote in the log: " Fabulous again, ! Will be back !!, Gayle Baenbridge" " Thank you for a beautiful morning ! I cant think of a more enjoyable way to spend the morning Angie " " Thanks for a grea
t day, Captain, Jim"

December 17th, 2012, Ami's Sister B. day

It was Nita's birth day, her brother Ami wanted to make it a truly memorable day, so he decided to take her and friends and family on a sunset cruise on our great Biscayne bay. The weather was great, the wind gentle and the temperature just comfortable. We sailed on the mizzen and the big jib. Every body was having great time on the forward deck. Good food and champagne were served. They loved it so much so they invited the captain to join them for after sail dinner in coconut Grove. Here are what they wrote in the log: " I cant think of a better way to spend a blustery winter day in Miami ! A wonderful sunset cruise and a beautiful time all around, Kurt B" " Thank you for an amazing birth day, Nita Frey" "Thank you for an extraordinary sunset sail. The sun, the moon and the sea all danced in concert to the delight of all on board, Sachi" " Thank you for an awesome

Ceci Vlasco & Family

Ceci Valasco the CEO of Miami beach chamber of commerce wanted to treat her friend Robert Who came all the way fro Cape Cod and her parents Mannie and Maria who came from Chicago to a sunset sail on Miami's Biscayne bay. She also invited her cousin Raquel who loves to sail and her grand son Cyrus also came along. I have to admit that the weather was not what most local Floridians would consider for a sunset sail. In fact the morning trip was scrubbed because they did not like the weather. That said, Ceci and her family and friends had a great time in spite of the on again off again sprinkles. Here is what they wrote in the log: " What a wonderful boat and excursion ! I had a great time, Raquel" "What a great experience! Very smooth ride, Thank you Captain. B Maria Valasco" " Another most excellent adventure.The perfect journey on a lightly rainy day. Thanks for being the perfect Captain, Ceci Valasco and Cyrus" "Thank you very much for the boat ride. She is beautiful! I look forward to sailing with you again, Robert Vance"
