Yes. Yes, it is. Glad you are having a good time. A bit of clouds? Any effect from the disturbed weather further north?

Time for videos, but I'm bored with cats. How about some music. Seems to fit sort of with the Caribbean theme of this thread.

There is no off season.

Dave, have a great time in Bonaire. If you get a chance please post how the conditions turned out. We're going the 1st week of July & sailing at Lac Bay.

So far, so good! 11m which translates to 5.5 or 6.0 and predicted to get stronger next few days!

Dave, are you in the group boosting? Looks like a cool place with the smooth water up to the beach with a clean offshore breeze.

Oh yeah, I was next, she just failed to catch it….no. It was like a dance as they tried to launch right in front of the beach. Side-off winds and deep water make it a little intimidating, but Dixie got her launch-to-land solo wings. It’s really just a strip of land and small beach, next to the salt ponds, the 2 buses run the schools and boats and if needed only $20 for rescue!

Do they tell people its $20 for rescue before or after they need a rescue?

Nice drone shot of Atlantis Beach. Glad to hear you had good wind and a great trip. We're now making final preparations for our family trip to Bonaire during the 1st week of July.
