July 6th, 2016, Andrew Sherry and Family

It was a wonderful coincident for Andrew to meet me and to learn about my charter business. When it was time to have a family reunion, he decided the have the family gathering aboard my humble ship sailing on the beautiful waters of Biscayne bay.  They came from Orlando, Washington DC , New York and Coconut Grove.
I recommended that we sail in the morning. They really have a good Karma, the morning rain subsided exactly the time we were supposed to set sail also later on in the evening, my sunset sail had to deal with some foul weather.
We started with the Main, Mizzen and Staysail. RA was going on a even comfortable pace. On the way back, since the wind was behind us and it appeared that we were going on a slower pace, Andrew suggested that we raise the forward Jib. and wow, they were really impressed with RA under f

ull sail, a real special treat, that the group really appreciated.
That day was also the first time I have Marg and Bianca as crew on RA.
It was great having them aboard. their presence added a level of hospitality to the trip.
Here is what they wrote in the log:

" Could not have had a better time, Thanks, Pete"

"The Sherry crew had a great time! Thank you for a nice day of sun and sailing, Anja, Jimmy, Johana, Atena, Pete & Cici"
