Team Bonaire landed this past weekend in the Big Apple to attend the East Coast Windsurfing Festival. They are guests at the oceanfront home of Mr. and Mrs. Thom Herring in Long Island. Thom’s son Alex is an annual visitor to Bonaire. Alex is part of the Long Island Posse that arrives each February. Ann Phelan of Caribbean Wind & Sun Vacations organizes this annual group trip where over 50 windsurfers descend on Bonaire to experience their favorite windsurf venue. One of the group members, Mike Burns and his colleague Michael Alex are coordinating the East Coast Windsurfing Festival. Michael is a long time visitor to Bonaire and the author of the famous Peconic Puffin Windsurf Blog.
Ezri Heymans, Frederik Quadvlieg, Fra Assiz and Caesar Finies are set to compete this weekend at the windsurf festival. Other Bonaire repeaters competing at the event include Jill and George Marr who hosted a grande BBQ to welcome Team Bonaire. Check out two websites with more information on Team Bonaire’s visit to NY.
