Sailing Around Bonaire or Miles Making
Many visitors but also locals, would love to sail around Bonaire or just making miles for endorsement of their sailing qualifications. We, being the skippers (both Yachtmaster Ocean with combined 150,000 NM experience), offer such a trip on board of the 50ft Ocean Racer CrossRoads.
Your participation will be honored with a signed certificate of competence which carries your name, the miles and the track you made.
Note that sailing around the island Bonaire, depends on the weather. If we arrive at the Salt Pans while turning north and we find that the seas are too rough and/or the winds too strong, we must tack back and stay inshore. Then we sail around Klein Bonaire towards Slagbaai at the far west side of Bonaire for a lunch and sail later close to the wind along the coast towards Kralendijk.
The 50ft Ocean Racer CrossRoads, being the only charter yacht in Bonaire that is capable to comfortably offer such a trip, present this adventure on your doorstep.
Departure at 08.00 from Club Nautico, a few hundred meters from Karelse Bar. We prefer that everyone participate in an active sailing role varying from winch, rope and sail handling to helming and navigation. Time of arrival between 16.00 and 17.00 at Club Nautico.
Costs all-in: morning snacks, a hard-core sailors lunch, coffee/tea and soft drinks, cleaning.
Not included: personal insurances (health care, belongings).
Participants: 95 USD pp
From perfect flat water to the wild Caribbean sea, passing historical places and lots of flying fish. This trip is a must for the less faint-hearted and curious.
