was born in Egypt where he sailed on the Nile and the Mediterranean as a youngster.
He lived and studied in Germany, Sweden, Canada and the U.S. where he completed
his Ph.D. degree. He held academic positions for almost 20 years at universities
in Oregon, Florida, Mississippi, Nebraska and Maryland. He spent the last three
years of his scientific career at John Hopkins University in Baltimore, where
he fell in love with sailing on Chesapeake Bay and owned his first yacht, the
RA. Asaad realized that he enjoys people and sailing so much that he decided
to have a mid-career change. He became a Coast Guard licensed captain in 1983.
Since then he has been chartering RA on the waters of Chesapeake Bay, the Virgin
Islands, the Bahamas, Biscayne Bay and the Florida Keys.
