Bonaire is Open - just arrived

We got our PCR COVID tests, filled out the online health survey, and arrived on the 2nd Delta flight into Bonaire since the start of the Pandemic. Visitation is low, but more will be arriving Sat. on the next direct Delta flight from Atlanta. I sailed late yesterday after arriving, with 6.9m & 106L board. Wind is Fx to pick up later this afternoon.

There’s a lot of sargassum weed in deeper water, so this could be a problem for foiling. Sargassum seems to have dramatically increased in the Caribbean. Another human-caused problem?? I’ll report back.

Today the wind was light, so I tried foiling with the Franz Brothers. They’ve opened a small rental shop at the derp end of Lac Bay. Conditions were great. The water gets deep 10 feet from shore & it’s flat until you get out to the middle of the Bay. Taty was w very helpful, & they have really good gear. Peggy went along to take photos with her iPhone.
