October 18th, 2015, Julie and Family

My good friend Julie had her Parents  were here in Miami for a visit, She wanted to show them the best Miami has to offer. She scheduled a cruise. I also Invited my Friend Lisa. Ned was also on board . It was a very windy day. We actually got lucky because the weather turned foul the next day. We raised the minimum sailes of the Mizen and staysail. Ra loved the heavy wind, and we were doing hull speed, and the guests had a great time.

Here is what they wrote in the log:

Thank you so much for a wonderful trip.! Sunny smile, sunny skies, wonderful Captain and helper Ned!!
Beautiful times. What a blessing to experience
More sun , more fun!, with Gratitude, Julie"

"Just what I needed, a beautiful idyllic day with company that was inspiring, authentic and wholesome. Enjoyed conversing with you and Ned. Thank you ever so much for your warm hospitality, Food was good also, Karen"

October 3rd, 2015, Andrea & friends

This is the first trip that is taking place thru Boat Day.  Thank you Kimon. Andrea , organized that trip with friends to enjoy Sailing on Biscayne bay, and what a day it was. It was so windy, that at the last minute I decided to call Nina, as a extra crew to help man the ship due to the heavy wind. It was blowing steady 25, gusting to 30 knots. Getting out of the slip was the biggest challenge. The wind was coming from the west, so we raised the staysail and the mizen and we sailed out of the channel. It was truly an exhilaration sail.T

hey all had a great time even the crew.
