December 24th, 2017, Neda picuric and family

She had her friend Victoria from New York, and her sister  Michy from Serbia who were visiting Miami. She wanted to share with them the best Miami has to offer, a sailing trip aboard the Ra on our great biscayne bay. The weather was a little nippy , but they seem to not mind. the wind was up. Titus and I  raised the main, the mizzen and the small jib.
Here is what they wrote in the log:

"Thank you for a memorable day off sailing. We appreciated your hospitality and company. It was a pleasure to watch our skilled captain and his mate in action, Warm regards, Neda, Jose, Victoria and daughters and Michy"

"Love you captain, Best captain ever, Christine"

"Excellent day! Thank you, Happy new Year, Jean"

"Thank you so much for an amazing day, We enjoyed it so much, We will remember this day, Thanks again, Vicky"

December 24th, 2017, Titus' B Day

Tiutus was born on Christmas Eve. He wanted to celebrate his birthday with his family and friends on the water sailing on RA on Biscayn Bay. On board was his friend Aramis and Isis's friend from California Rachel. It was so still. We raised the Main, Mizzen and Big Jib. Then we realized that the Jib was luffing due to the lack of wind, so we took it down and continued to sail/drift with the full main and mizzen. It was very pleasant peaceful time on the water in-spite of the lack of wind. As I always say a bad day sailing is better than a good day at the office. Every body had a good time even baby Falcon.
Here is what they wrote in the log:

"Sailing with you is always a pleasure and a privilege. Thanks for making sure there is a beautiful sunset every single time, Rachel"

" Another wonderful sailing adventure. Much love to the Masoud's ,

Titus, Rachel and extended Family, Aramis"

December 19th, 2017, Daniel and the Canadian connection

They were here from Canada escaping the winter chill at home. They decided to soak some sun aboard the RA on biscayne bay. They were a great group of talented Opera singers and entertainers. I really enjoyed having them aboard. The weather was great. Ned and I raised the main, Mizzen and stay sail. Ra was on even keel and the group had a good time.
