Need 4 Speed

A day sailing with the CrossRoads is an adventure. We will surprise you all the way. First, we teach you how to sail. If you wish you can helm the yacht, navigate and change sail. And if you want and, on the condition, that you master the basics of sailing we will give you the opportunity to settle a record time on the trajected Karelse Bar (start 150-meters west) to Punt Vierkant (200-meter west), 4.7 NM.

This is our race-course. We set the sails between Harbour Village Marine and Karelse Bar and pass Karelse Bar at high speed. In a strong wind, we can make a mind-blowing 20 plus knots. The audience on shore will be flabbergasted. The time with your names will be published on the website Global-Unlimited, so go for it! Keep the CrossRoads the fastest 50ft Racer on Bonaire.

Note that you will always be responsible for your own safety during the trip and that you have to 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. The yacht is rated in the race division of the Caribbean Sailing Association and is in full race condition with brand-new racing sails.
