Bonaire 2015

We're back from our 2015 trip to Bonaire. The wind was very light for most of the trip, but one day into the second week of the trip, we scored some solid wind. I was able to use the 4.8 Severne Freek for a little while, but the 5.2 was the call for most of the sailing. I think I pumped more in one week on the water in Bonaire than the entire year of 2014..... But, Bonaire is just an incredible place to be even when there isn't any wind. It sure beats the snow covered driveway I returned home to. Here is a video with some donkeys, snorkeling and of course, the windsurfing. Looking forward to next year!

  1. Where did you snorkel? We go next week!

    1. Snorkeling is right at Lac Bay!! Just dodge the windsurfers on the way out and the reef is right there!! The fish just get bigger and bigger the further out you go, so keep on going!!

  2. Dean!! You have to make it to Bonaire! You want some serious speed tips.... Taty, Kiri, Amado and the whole Bonaire slalom team is training hard almost every day. Those guys are fast!!!! And full of great tips.

  3. OOOHHH your statement at 40 seconds is soooo true!!! When snorkeling a tip is to bring a banana in a zip loc plastic bag with you,, once out there open it up and see what happens!!
