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.

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.

Food For Friends Catering on Bonaire

January 11, 2013

Recently, I hosted a small supper party. I wanted to serve local fish in a creative way. A long time friend, Roland Aarts opened a new catering business, Food for Friends. I had the privilege of being his first customer. Roland prepared a light and sumptuous array of Amuses and one entree. I asked for locally caught Lionfish. Roland did not disappoint with an amazing Lionfish tartare. It was a lovely supper well enjoyed by all.
