Bonaire or Bust

450 mile downwind passage from Martinique to Bonaire. We were so excited to dust the Whisker Pole off and pole out “wing on wing”.

Everything was going great for the first 12 hours until at 11 PM we jibed and bent the whisker pole…Aghhhh!

It’s a choice:  laugh or cry

Adrien and Pierre explored the island on a scooter and we all enjoyed diving on the spectacular reefs

I wanted to quickly say hi and let you know my last day at IM is this coming Tuesday! I gave my notice so I could accept a job closer to home at my friend’s marketing company, with no more travel.
