October 13th, 2013, Rebecca

Rebecca wanted to have a special event to Celebrate her daughter's 9th birthday. A sail on RA on Miami's Biscayne bay was the ticket. It was a beautiful day. I also had my friend Mike and his friend Rafaela aboard as a crew. It was a breezy day with an overcast. It also happened to be Columbus day, so there was many sail boats returning from the Regatta. By the time we got to the dock all the children were totally relaxed. We had to carry them off the ship. I told Rebecca that they will sleep well, and they sure did.
here is what they
 wrote in the log:

"We celebrated Zara's 9th birthday with a fantastic sail. The children enjoyed the experience and will be talking about it for quiet a while. Wonderful hospitality and beautiful day for sailing. Thanks for a fantastic afternoon, Rebecca"

"Thank you so much for this excellent experience. Blessings and happy sailing, Bri-Abel"

October 6th, 2013, Gianfranco

It was a pleasure to have my old friend,and my webmaster, Gianfranco to come aboard with his lovely wife Vanessa and their friends, Eddie, Dar,Luke and Margret to go for a sunset cruise. I also invited my new friend Daniel Brewer to come aboard as a crew. .There is really nothing more beautiful than a sunset cruise on Biscayne Bay. We just raised the Jib and the mizzen  and crossed the bay.
Every body had a great time, when we came back to the dock they stayed on board to continue their party. It was a pleasure to have them aboard and to see that they are having such a good time on RA even at the dock.
Here is what they wrote in the log:

"Our baby daughter turned 8 months today, and we celebrated aboard the RA with Captain Asaad steering the way on a most perfect sunset sail. It was absolutely magical. Beautiful boat, beautiful friends and family. Beautiful Miami day, Thank you Captain Asaad, Luke & Margret"

"Captain Asaad, Thank you for the sail, fellowship and the sunset, Happy Anniversary, Daniel Brewer"

Daniel was referring to the celebration of the anniversary
 of the October war which was being celebrated that day.
