June 30th, 2013, Robin Lewin & Family

It was Robin's Birthday, and she wanted to do something special. She and her husband mark and the three children came aboard for a 3 hour cruise on Biscayne bay. I invited Hindy and her daughter Elizabeth to join as crew. I sure needed some help today. It was blowing steady 25 knots. we sailed on the mizzen and stay sail. RA does very well in heavy weather with this sail plan. It was a beautiful afternoon. Thanks to mark and Hindy for helping Jibe and manage the sails. Here is what Robin wrote in the log: " just returned from a three hour cruise with captain Asaad aboard the RA. Had a great time. Captain Asaad is a competent sailor and a great conversationalist. The weather was perfect with wind at our backs and the experience will be remembered. Thanks Captain from the lewins, Mark and Robin"
