Had the Stay and the Mizzen up and RA was making 5 -6 knots. Everybody was on the forward deck having a great time getting wet. H

March 26th, 2015, Julie Uygur and Family

Julie really wanted to go sailing and get her sea legs again. She lived on a sail boat in her earlier years in Monte Carlo when she was an Opera singer. She really wanted her children to experience the exhilaration and the pleasure of sailing. She could not have picked a better day. It was very windy. I had to put them to work helping me get out of the slip. After that it was great sailing. We even enjoyed a beautiful sunset. Here is what Julie wrote in the log:

"Asaad and Ned: thank you for an incredible sail! It was  a wonderful experience for the family and I enjoyed feeling my sea-legs again. Very smooth sail and great knowledge about the area. W
