Severne Sail Bliss

July 21, 2013

I have found windsurf heaven. I started sailing in 97 and have sailed mostly Neil Pryde sails. I have tested Maui Sails, Gaastra and Gun Sails along the way. This week, Gert, the manager at Jibe City recommended I try their Severne Gator sail. I sailed the 5.0 several days this week. What a sweet sail. I used my loyal 85 liter Angulo Chango board paired with the Gator 5.0 was a bit of heaven.  Bonaire has been experiencing crazy good July trades but with some voodoo chop. It’s been challenging but fun sailing and the Gator sail really made my day.

It’s always a treat to have good summer wind on Bonaire. The Severene sail has really enhanced my windsurf experience this week.

Bonaire Real Estate

July 17, 2013

Bonaire is one of the Caribbean’s last unspoiled islands. It is still relatively small and low key. With a modern infrastructure, it’s a highly sought after destination for those seeking to find a Caribbean home.  

One of Bonaire’s best real estate companies is Caribbean Homes. Take a peak at their website. They offer properties within every budget. 

I moved to paradise, so can you.

Windsurf Bliss

No wind, come SUP

No wind, come SUP

As I finish packing up to head home to Bonaire, I had to peak at the wind forecast. I had a lovely pre summer sojourn on Cape Cod with a visit to Bermuda. It’s been super hot on Cape Cod and the 4th of July traffic has been insane. I seek the solitude and serenity of my summer Bonaire.

Windguru and Windfinder are in concert; BIG WINDS are here to stay in Bonaire. To celebrate this windy period, I am offering 5-10% off all new bookings starting today for travel through Nov. 1. Remember, Andy Brandt has his annual Aug. ABK clinic the 17th. I have steep discounts that week as well. Kids Camps continue all summer. Ask me for details.
