Cabarete Dominican Republic Conditions and equipment transport question.

Post by jsl » Mon, 09 Feb 1998 04:00:00


I wonder what the sailing conditions are at this time.  I plan to go
next month.  When bringing your own equipment, is it a problem to get it
from the airport to the beach or hotel.  Any information would be
appreciated. Thanks.

I am not sure of the weather conditions at this time of the year.As for
getting yor equipment to the beach,many locals have vans or p/u trucks
for hire.Negotiate a price before you go(Ripping you off for more Cash
is the national pastime IMHO..).The will all be at the airport.A great
place to stay is Vela.Weekly storage is about 25 to 35 us I think.
Good luck
Dave

-- The weather in Cabarete during Winter is frontal.  Expect at least one front
to pass during a two week stay.  Expect 6-8 days varied sailing in 14 days.  The
reef can get very hairy for a few days during a front.  Take all your sails.

Most taxi operators in Cabarete will have a suitable vehicle.  Arrange your
transfer via you operator or accommodation.

See the Vela website for a day to day wind report. www.windsurf.com/cwind.shtml.
