May 22nd, 2015, Eric Dubois & Deirdre Nero

Eric and Deirdre have new lawyers in their offices and wanted to introduce them to the best of Miami. The wether was unsettled, so ned and I decided to play a conservative sail plan. and that was a very good decision. We had a pot pore of wind, all the spectrum from doldrum to 30 knots. We got lucky though, nobody got wet. Here is what they wrote in the log:

" Captain Asaad, thank you so much for a lovely afternoon sailing on RA. We appreciate the opportunity to take our staff out for a fun trip bonding on Biscayne Bay! We look forward to next time, Love Dierdre Nero and aid Gros Bubois"

"Thank you Captain Asaad and Ned for the terrific sailing day! It is a great way to kick off memorial day weekend, Nancy"

" Thank you so much, John"

"Captain Asaad, this was my first time sailing and it was amazing. I really liked it. for sure I will come back. Thank you so much, Edward from Nicaragua"

"Thank you for the lovely semi adventure, Captain Asaad. You are a nice host. I hope to sail with you again. Hpercilia, from Venzuela"

"Hello, Thank you for everything. I really appreciate it, hopefully we will get together again, Nick Torres, fro China"

Her students came from all over the world, Venzuela,India,the Dominican Republic, Egypt, and Peru. for this group a day sail on Biscayne bay was such a great experience. here is what they wrote in the log:
