July 29th, 2015, Kat and sister and friends

It was Daniela birthday, Kat, her sister decided to celebrate her sister's birth day on a sailing vessel on Biscayne bay. It was a spur of the moment decision. Luckily I was available, and was able to call Nina to come aboard to help run the ship. We had good wind. Raised the Big Jib and the mizzen and sailed across the bay and back almost  al the way to the

slip. Nina is really very good on the helm. and she really loves helming. Here is what they wrote in the log:

"" Muchas Gracias Papi !"

" lots of love from Sydney Aus "

" Thank you for everything. Please send the images to above e mail, we love you, from down under"

July 19th, 2015, Nicole and Family

Nicole wanted to arrange a special welcome for her guests from Venzuela. Carlos and Nicole and the two daughters as well as Simone and his family from Venzuela came aboard for an afternoon sail on Biscayne Bay. My grand son Ocean came aboard as a first mate for the first time.
It was a lovely afternoon,  we raised the big jib, they all stayed on the forward deck enjoying the gentle breeze as RA made her way on the calm waters of our great Biscayne Bay. Here is what they wrote in the log:

"The Bonadies and Bonadies - Ferrer family and kids came aboard today and had a wonderful time on this dreamy sailboat. Looking forward to coming again soon, Carlos Bonadies"

"From Venezuela and Miami we recommend Asaad's boat. Asaad and grandson Ocean
made us have a fantastic day!"

July,18th, 2015, Julie and family

Two families came from far away places to get to know each other. Julie decided the best way to have them mix and mingle is an afternoon sail on Biscayne Bay. The day started with a lot of wind. I even lost my hat as we were casting off. kept the small jib up sailing out of the channel on a very low pace, the wind kept slowing down , so we got the big jib up. finally we had to motor home because the wind completely died. They were good sports about the whole thing. Here is what Julie

wrote in the log:

" Captain Asaad, Thank you very much for the wonderful memories and the trip. This was definetly
a real high! You were a wonderful host and both families had a great time, Thank you!!, Julie Hayder, The Hayders and the keenans"
