March 22nd, 2014, The Turk Family

Steve found me on Travel Zoo. He thought it will be a great gift to his family, especially those who are visiting from Argentina. He thought a sailing afternoon on Biscayn bay will make there visit to Miami a memorable experience.
The weather man was predicting 50% chance of rain. Robert was justifiably
 concerned about the weather. Based on my experience with the weather man I managed to convince Robert to give it a try. As they arrived to the boat it started to sprinkle. I suggested they come aboard and wait below deck and see what the weather does. Almost immediately it cleared and we took off. It was blowing pretty good. I was glad to have Ned and Barbara who came aboard for the first time. they were very helpful getting RA out of the slip with the 25knots wind on the beam.

We had a good sail and they were glad to have come against the weather man's predictions.
Here is what they wrote in the log:

"The weather changed to the best. what a fantastic day on the high seas. A view of Miami I will never forget, Steve Turk"

"Wonderful windy day,wonderful Captain, looking forward to learn more about sailing Barbara Colonna"

February 23rd, 2014, Claire Floreani & Family

It was indeed a beautiful day for a full day sail. They deserve it, they came all the way from Paris and Claire arranged for them to spend the day on the water. We had gentle Breeze, raised, the Main, Mizzen and big gib, most of the time, except when we needed to motor to get to Stilts ville, whch they really wanted to see. Claire said that it was a dream fro her to see these houses in the middle of the bay.
ere is what they wrote in the log:

"Thank you for a nice and sunny day and a very beautiful sailing!! Michael, Marie and Claire, from Paris"

We also sailed among the Olympic regatta that was taking place on the bay. These boats with their colorful Spinnakers, were a sight to see.
