August 6th, 2016, Roslyn and friends

I wanted to take Roslyn  sailing for a long time. When I met Marg and Bianca at the Memorial of Roslyn's mom and was able to convince them to come aboard as  crew, then I invited Roslyn for an afternoon sail . I then realized that Roslyn is actually  as seasoned sailor. I also invited my good friend David and his friend Arturo to join us. The sail started with heavy weather, but RA had no problem keeping the group comfortable with the minimum sail plan of the mizzen and staysail.
We were very lucky to avoid the heavy weather that was on land. We managed to motor home with minimum exposure to the big storm.
The crew were all unfazed with the weather conditions considering the It was the first trip for my new crew, Marg and Bianca on board. I was really impressed by them handling the boat and the weather and the guests under these conditions:
I was also very happy to see our new friend Joanie enjoying the trip in spite the weather.
Here is

what they wrote in the log:

"My dearest Asaad, you are a wonderful friend and amazing Captain. Thank you so much for helping us find new life on your beautiful RA. May spirit bless and keep you always, and may the wind be always at your back. Thank you for being such a good friend and generous soul. Love,Light and friendship always, Roslyn, Miami!"

"Excellent storm sailing! Pleasure to be on R for the first time!, Arturo"
