This exciting high-speed adventure takes off from Kralendijk and familiarize you with the west-coast of Bonaire and Klein Bonaire.
The 4-hours Sailing Clinic with the 50ft Ocean Racer CrossRoads learns you the basics of ocean sailing and racing. It will be a surprising adventure, all the way. We teach you to helm the yacht and to handle the powerful winches, to tack with the running backstays and to change sails. And if you want and, on the condition, that you master the basics of sailing, we will give you the opportunity to speed up the yacht. It is a lifetime thrill to see the mono-hull accelerating through the turquoise water of Bonaire.
Participants will receive a by the skippers (both Yacht Master Ocean with combined 150,000 NM experience) signed certificate of competence, that you followed a Baseline Sailing Clinic (4 hours) on board of a 50ft Ocean Racer. This document will carry your name and stipulate which disciplines of ocean sailing you master.
This is a true blast from start to finish; a fantastic experience for all thrill seekers who wish to know or once in their life what ocean racing is all about.
Note that you will always be responsible for your own safety during the trip and that you must follow the instructions of the skippers, who will always be concerned about your well-being. The skippers carry high credentials: both are certified Yacht Master Ocean with a combined 150.000 NM of experience. The yacht is rated in the race division of the Caribbean Sailing Association and is in full race condition with brand-new racing sails.
