February 25th, 2017, , PM,Aldo Peterson and family

Aldo and family were here from Denmark, Boston,New York and Israel.  It was a pleasure to have the family reunion held on RA .

It was indeed a beautiful afternoon. Had a great sail On Biscayne Bay. They all sat on the forward deck soaking in the beautiful warm rays of south Florida sun.
Here is what Aldo wrote in the log:

"Thank you so very much for a fantastic day on the ocean. We enjoyed every minute! We will be back next year, The Petersons from Denmark"

This is a return guest. The best compliment a guest can pay is to come back. Was great to have George aboard again. This time he had guests from all over the world to show them the beauty of sailing on Biscayne bay. It was a very unusual morning. Never had I experienced such conditions. It was very eary, unusual fog associated with very calm conditions. I needed the GPS to navigate the fogy conditions in the channel. As time progressed, the wind picked up and the fog subsided. Here is what they wrote in the log:

"Captain my Captain, Thanks so much for letting some old friends spend some time out on the water, Much enjoyed, Kendall "

" had a wonderful time. Thanks so much!, Dale D


"Excellent trip. great start to the weekend, Josh Archer"

" Really enjoyed the trip Captain did a wonderful Job, Jorge Vigil"

" 100% Relaxing! Thanks, Eric Marvin, North Carolina"

February 20th, 2017, Danielle Sheer & Family

She was here with her family from Boston. It was a spur of the moment decision to have her family enjoy a day sail on RA on Biscayn bay. It was indeed a beautiful day.
The weather was ideal for such a young family like her's.
Here is what she wrote in the log:

"Captain Asaad, we had a lovely trip with you on our vacation to Coconut Grove. Our daughters Samantha (2) and Charlotte ( 8 months) had a beautiful afternoon sailing on

RA. Thank you for your hospitality and sharing your life Story with us. We wish you the best as you continue your Journey, Danielle Sheer"

February 13th, 2017, Ihab & friends & Sarah from France

My cousin Ihab and his friends were here from Montreal to enjoy some warm weather. They decided to go sailing with me on RA on Biscayne Bay. Then I got the reporters from France who wanted to check out the  great sailing waters of Biscayne Bay and take some pictures of Stiltsville.
I had  all my sails up, sailed for a while was very nice gentle breeze that every body enjoyed, but I needed to start motoring to make it to  Stiltsville.  On the   way back, again sailed for a while. the wind on the stern, but again needed to motor to get home in a reasonable time.
So, we had an interesting day, gentle breeze a bit of sailing a bit of motoring a bit of sight seeing
Here is what Ihab and Sarah wrote in the log:

"We had a lovely day at sea with captain Asaad on his sail boat RA. A memorable day and captain Asaad went out of his way to please us. Thank you very much Asaad for a lovely day, Ihab Tadros"

"Dear Captain Asaad, I was really happy to be on your boat today. Since 27 years I have not been on a sail boat since the storm that blew my yacht away. I feel in peace now after being on your boat. This made me have reconnection with the sea, Thanks a lot, love

, Sarah, from France."
